Rosie is a British situation-comedy television series, written by Roy Clarke that was broadcast between 1977 and 1981. It was set in the fictitious Yorkshire town of Slagcaster and filmed in Clarke's native South Yorkshire, with the majority of the opening scenes of series one filmed in the village of New Rossington, although the colliery shown in episode one is possibly Hatfield Colliery. The central character was PC Penrose, the titular "Rosie", a young and inexperienced police officer, played by Paul Greenwood.

For the first series of seven episodes, broadcast in 1975, it was called The Growing Pains of PC Penrose, but it underwent a revamp with a new title, setting and signature tune.
