Mine too. Remember first watching this on Granada Plus in 2002 and I thought for a moment that Farrell (the bad guy with the 'tache) was being played by Joe Melia who starred as the ill-fated Ronnie Brent in Sweeney! This had the highest kill count ever in the entire series (6 men) and a climactic showdown worthy of The Professionals. In fact, this was filmed a few months before Hunter/Hunted in which Bodie and Doyle also had to deal with a villain carrying a laser sighted rifle. Also David Wickes who directed Nightmare had come off from filming a few Pros episodes.

On the Facebook page devoted to the show (Oi! We're The Sweeney), somebody re-edited the opening sequence of this episode, completely discarding the girl's dream, putting in its place a scene from Jigsaw where Regan talks about Irishmen, then the next clip is of a lorry pulling in and Farrell & Flynn waiting in the car saying it's their man. Then you see the would-be lorry thieves observing the driver in the cafe and then plays the titles sequence, only it's the original blue tinted one and when that finishes, the next scene is of Norman Charles going up to the Dutchman and threatening him.
