Great photos Arthur! Photos with Suzy Regan suggest some additional scenes were filmed, but ended up on the cutting room floor.
The photo of Regan in Suzy's bedroom looks like it has been taken from a filmed scene ( unlike the garden shots ). I'd say this scene would've been after Regan leaves the living room ( you see him in the corridor of the house & turning into a room ) & before he has the confrontation with Kate and the German.
Do you mind not calling me squire or chief or boyo or mate?
I'm just rewatching 'Regan'. I haven't watched it in a few years. It impresses me straightaway with the quality of the camera shots, locations, music (well not the opening pub singalong ! ) and how 'film like' it is. Back to it. Talk more later.
I will have to give it another viewing myself soon. Great film! By the way does anyone know how The Old Justice is doing these days, is it still in business?
It was taken over by the Winnicott Group a while back and turned into a pizza restaurant of some sort called "The Winnicott" but it closed permanently a while ago. It was then subject of plans to convert it into flats but the plans were thankfully rejected. More recently it was the subject of a campaign by local CAMRA (Campaign For Real Ale) along with residents and Councillors to get the pub listed as an asset of community value.
Sad news for a pub with such a TV/Filmm & Music history but thankfully there is a fervent interest in keeping it how it should be. A pub.
I enjoyed my rewatching of 'Regan'. It's great writing, cinematography and quality actors. Those three things are so often neglected in modern films today (Lol I must be getting old). Maybe the writing and the quality of acting is the hardest thing to achieve. Obvious example of this is clearly the remake/rewrite of 'The Sweeney' in film form by Nick Love (but I don't want to discuss that here).
Locations and camera angles just work superbly. They seem to tell the tale of the story just as well as the plot does.
Carter is suspicious of Regan and initially reluctant to work with him again. This is an interesting introduction to the two characters who we know will make a strong team in future series.
Regan's car is a beauty.
The characters seem already well rounded and worked out by the writers in 'Regan'. The viewer gets glimpses into their background, family history of divorce, Carter's marriage, girlfriends, problems with the boss etc. Rather than telling every fact about their lives, it makes you interested and curious, a fuller and more real world for the characters who don't seem to know or anticipate everything (which is a fault with many films today).
