    Loved this back in the eighties repeat season as I never liked it as a kid! It was clever how Regan and Haskins, his boss, disliked each other intensely in the early shows but by the end of the run had become staunch friends! Good how some villains returned for another episode unlike most cop shows in the day too! John Thaw and Dennis Waterman had good charisma and I think became great mates during production but drifted off after it's end I understand! Violence and a lot of sexy actresses make this one a winner!

    Jack Regan is a hard edged detective in the Flying Squad of London's Metropolitan Police. He pursues villains by methods which are underhanded and often illegal themselves, frequently violent and more often than not successful.


    On to the first movie....

    Apparently only the first series is on BR as Network weren't happy with the amount of sets sold!

    Damn! Can't hear this or anything else as my son has broken his earphones lead and left it in the socket! So we've got no sound at all on the set!
