A very underrated series
24 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

Just watched the DVD and would highly recommend it. There should have been more made. A shame really as it could have run for a few years. Mr Thaw is at his very best and the co-stars were from The Sweeney era. Mitch is a journalist who cares about what and who he writes about. Some of the stories are about the harsh times of the early eighties when i grew up. This tackles both racial issues, political and extremist issues which were in the headlines all the time, plus the strikes which had an impact on the consumer purchasing a newspaper. Worth watching and buying from e-bay or amazon. John Thaw is sadly missed by all his fans including myself.
