The best police to show ever
And if anyone thinks otherwise, shut it slag!
A wasted opportunity.
If they do a sequel ,then bring Ray back but re-cast George and play him as Dennis Waterman played him..i mean ,Dennis is still alive so you have 1st hand material,and guidance from the man himself !!!
Played a real scumbag in " Harry Brown" that I hated "PlanB" as George, and found
His character totally unlikeable.
He doesnt look,act,speak like a member of the Sweeney,and there is no way that the John Thaw Regan would put up with a 'tit' like that as his partner..
The TV series.
Its a hard hitting drama,like 'the Professionals' and its like a history lesson,showing how London used to look like in 1974-1975...great stuff !
Things changed with the introduction of PACE, before then the system was open to abuse by those who didn't play fair. However, even now, it is far from watertight.
Although it possesses a good entertainment factor, 'The Sweeney' shouldn't be looked upon for its historical accuracy.
The best (most realistic) UK cop show I saw, was a BBC series called 'Cops' (or 'The Cops'). I think it was shown sometime in the early 1990s. I cannot find any examples of it to show here.
Perhaps, if I saw it again, I might think that was crap, but at the time it was a good and fairly accurate portrayal of policing.
The historical aspect I was talking about was London and the scenery and way of life in 1975 that the series shows,not the Flying Squad itself...
The whole series is on ITV4 every weekday...im loving it !!
