Thief Takers? They can arrest me anytime..!
26 June 1999 | by (Luton, England) – See all my reviews

The Thief Takers has to be one of ITV's most best police series since from the likes of THE BILL, THE PROFESSIONALS and God knows what have ya!

With the series that started since 1996, it has brought a new light on introducing new characters to the TV world.

There were so many characters in that series I remember.. You remember the faces but then you tend to forget their names..

Most of the series being shot in and around London has certainly put producers well into the twilight zone by bringing something what could be well realistic action scenes which makes me raise an eyebrow or two..

By all means, 1996 was a great year, a good start to the series. By less forget that all the characters in the series performed well and it's a shame that these programme won't be made again..

As they say, life will go on and so will the series..

Long live the "Thief Takers!"
