I agree there, Poppy was one of the earliest few episodes I first saw going back to around 2000. Labbett was a good ruthless villain character although self serving and had no honour amongst thieves. Some great run down 70's era Docklands locations and a some superb action scenes along with the mud spattered car chase at Otford!
This was The Sweeney at the top of its game. Great dialogue, location filming, I love the atmosphere of a rainy London in early '75, the motors in the background (spotted two Mark 2 Cortinas, like mine!) The London Transport buses, the buildings and run down dock areas.
