Detective Lloyd (1932) is a Universal 12-chapter movie serial. A co-production between the American company Universal and the British company General Films – it was filmed entirely in Britain with British and Commonwealth actors. It was the only sound serial ever produced in England. Although a print was shown on British TV as recently as the 1970s, the film apparently is now considered lost.

It was also known by the titles Lloyd of the C.I.D. and In the Hands of the Hinfu. Detective Lloyd battled a villain known as the Panther in this serial. Material from this serial was edited into a movie called The Green Spot Mystery (1932), which is also a lost film. It is on the British Film Institute's BFI 75 Most Wanted list of lost films.[1]
