DVD Release?
2 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

Can anybody out there tell me if this is going to be released on DVD. The BBC have finally dusted down Philip Martin's Gangster's for a March 2006 release, now surely its time for this long lost item. I just think for all of us out there who have the Sweeney and the Professionals, this is the next logical step. If this is not likely in the near future is there anyone who may already have this on VHS, that could convert it to DVD? I'm too young to remember the show but it sounds great even though it was dropped half way through the first season due to its excessive violent contents. I think in this day and age we are all a little bit more grown up about seeing this sort of stuff on TV.
