A brilliant police series
2 April 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This brilliant police series is still often repeated on UK Drama. Although it was made in 1996 it doesn't yet look dated. Each episode concentrates on one or two of the main characters and their private lives, which usually involve the crimes they are working on at the time.

The flying squad deals with armed robbery and murder, so there are plenty of exciting car chases and shoot outs.However, the series also finds time for relationships and romance.

So many well-known actors made guest appearances in this series, including Nick Moran, Ray Winstone and Dougie Henshall.

If you get the chance to see it, I think you'll agree that it was a pity there were only 3 series made.
