Goofs

In a tape recorded interview with a murder suspect, Sam gives the date as Wednesday, 16 March. However, March 16th in 1973 was a Friday, and March 16th in 2006 was a Thursday. The only year in the 70s in which March 16th fell on a Wednesday was 1977, while March 16th 2005 was a Wednesday. (Whether this was a production error based on the 2005 calendar or a deliberate error by the producers in keeping with the ambiguous nature of events is unknown.) See more »

Hunt and Tyler hit the streets
13 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is another good episode of this top notch show that brings the essence of 'The Sweeney' back to life on TV.

It just works, it's not hard to see why. The chemistry between Glenister and Simm is fantastic, there's great humour and music, and actually it's 'who done it?' nature works well too.

The time travel aspect has been reduced in importance slightly, as we can't have every episode be about Sam hating 70's life, but it strikes the right balance of both worlds.

Another good episode.
