Excellent 6 Part Series Drama
8 June 2000 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

Civvies is an excellent, gripping drama about a groups of ex-paratroopers who leave army life to start a security firm. The 6 parts revolve around the bombing of a pub when they were in Belfast.

Jason Isaacs plays Frank Dillon, a real anti-hero, who has to deal with life in civilian (civvies) clothes.

There are also notable performances by Peter O'Toole and Peter Howitt (from UK TV Show Bread - the first "Joey").
