The bill at its peak
10 June 2009 | by (staffs, england) – See all my reviews

The year 2000 was probably what most fans would agree was the pinnacle year for the show; after 17 years this fine British television institution had reached its zenith, and unfortunately its been downhill all the way since. i own the collectors edition on VHS of the 3 episode 'trial of Eddie santini and watched it again, for the first time in years. i was very surprised that it was way better than i had remembered. here we have Pc Eddie santini;(brilliantly played by Michael Higgs)a good looking smooth wide-boy, always out for himself and whatever he can lay his hands on in order to better himself, always looking for an angle in any given situation. but the real Santini... a chauvinistic bully with a bad attitude towards anybody who gets in his way, especially women. the episode follows on from 1998 when when (then PC Rosie fox, played by Higgs real life Wife Caroline Catz)left Sun hill after falling foul of Santini's obsession with her... fast forward 18 months and the two will be thrown together on a case, but this time Santini's up to his neck in it and this fox has seen the rabbit. this really is simply very classy television... gripping stuff that is impossible to look away from, even if you do know what happens. i would imagine most fans have seen this, but if you haven't, try and track down a copy you wont be disappointed.
