Thief Takers - True Great British Television At Its Best
I watched it when it was on TV the first time and thought it was OK,but nothing to write home about.....But after picking up the pilot episode on video in a second hand shop it left me dying to watch all 3 series of this wonderful programme.I scoured second hand video shops and boot fairs with no joy,then i started searching Ebay,and i was lucky to get series 1,2 & 3,ok,it cost me £100 to buy all of them,but money well spent to be able to see the whole lot.The characters in it all have decent roles and it not only is about bank raids,robberies and general policing,but gave an insight into the characters lives and this made it just that little bit more interesting.I would rate this as good as the Sweeney and other programmes of that type.I just hope that one day it is released on DVD,and then i am sure it would become more well known.If you get the chance to watch it,then do,you will not be disappointed.Cheers Nick.
