I saw this series in 1998 on Indian satellite TV. Got completely hooked on it, taped a few episodes as well. It's strange that "Thieftakers" is rarely mentioned as one of the many great series produced for British television. Tight plots, richly etched characters, "Thieftakers" is set in a very believable milieu. Each episode has a very cinematic quality, nothing TV about it. The inter-actions between the characters are handled with great subtlety. The chemistry between Grant Masters and Amanda Pays is electric! Grant Masters had the potential to be a very cool Steve McQueenesque leading man in the movies. It's a pity his career has been limited to television. His enigmatic, intense portrayal of team boss Glenn Matteo is truly memorable.
