Look, I'm no critic with the same level of expertise as those above. All I can say is that Hazell was fantastic! The 'edginess' of Hazell always gripped me; the short sharp characters, the fast efficient script. And all beautifully introduced with fabulous Maggie Bell thumping out her very best blues (too bad I can't find a quality copy). Perhaps best was the rock solid foundation provided by all the supporting cast. OK, 'Hazell' seemed a little young to have so much 'experience' but Nicholas Balls' interpretation was perfectly believable if you simply accepted that the character started out young and grew fast, and what's so unusual about that in a large brutal city? Oddly, the series reminded me of the quality of Callan, which I love. Golly me, both so much better than usual politically correct diatribe presented as drama these days.
