Remember when workmen used to dig up the road and put up those weird little red and white striped tents about the size of a phone box over the hole?Is nostalgia allowed on this thread or will Clouseau be along shortly with a warning?
I have started watching reruns of The Sweeney again checking locations on the internet. People seem to be able to park anywhere. Few yellow lines. Everybody is smoking. Everbody is politically incorrect. Regan is always grumpy. Clothes are terrible.
Example - opening scene Regan in the back of a cab smoking and doing survelliance. His opening line is :-
‘How did we manage in this sceptred Isle before we started poncing off the Ayrabs?’
When the victim gets mugged Regan and Carter just take the p*ss out of him.
They used to be a convenient cover for police surveillance. After The Sweeney made liberal use of them in the TV show the real scuffers were pissed off as they could no longer be used for their purposes.
