Watched this one last night from ITV4 again and another decent episode, if not up to the standard of Poppy. Roy Kinnear was in it as a small time villain who turned informer. Again, some good 70s locations.
Don't know about anyone else but I like to take myself off sometimes into the 70s, with TV and my 70s music mix CDs, its sort of my "happy place!"
This was the first ever episode of the "Sweeney" I saw.
It was on a repeat on ITV during the late 70s/very early 80s - while mum nipped for a bath after putting us to bed, I'd shuffle downstairs on my backside and sneak into the Front room to watch it....
Channel 4 repeated the episode as part of their "Vintage Thames" season in the 1990s - alongside "Callan" and "Special Branch" 'Double Exposure'.
Some great faces in this episode too.
Roy Kinnear, Russel "Lonely" Hunter from 'Callan', Henry Woolfe (then presenting "Words & Pictures" on schools TV) and the great Micheal Cole.
Isn't this episode also famous for one scene - as it was shot during June 1975, one of the scenes captured the freak summer snow fall!
Frightened by Horror Films? - Just remember, BEHIND the camera stand even more horrifying individuals moaning about the Catering food, the hours they work and quoting Union Rules... that's just the Electricians.
