Been watching series 4 lately in the order that the episodes were originally shown 40 years ago but instead of the much maligned Hearts & Minds, I decided to settle on this one instead as it's a much better story, it's got great characters, no ridiculous comedy moments and fabulous action. This is what The Sweeney is all about and this week, I will be watching Taste Of Fear instead of the equally disappointing Latin Lady.

Here's a list of writers who did just 1 Sweeney episode-
Murray Smith ( Faces )
Tudor Gates ( Jigsaw )
Martin Hall ( Golden Boy )
Robert Banks Stewart ( Contact Breaker )
Peter Hill ( Sweet Smell Of Succession )
PJ Hammond ( Pay Off )
Robert Wales ( Loving Arms )
Donald Churchill ( Hearts And Minds )
Smith was in the military prior to writing including the SAS, he was also Scottish which may explain the name 'Tober' as I came across a slang definition of 'tober' as "a Scottish nickname given to those who often get into fights and more importantly win. A Scottish slang word for beating somebody up".
Smith wrote several of Pete Walker's films, on a dvd commentary for one of them Smith is mentioned & Walker refers to him ominously as 'poor Murray', not sure why.
Do you mind not calling me squire or chief or boyo or mate?
