It's suspected that a peace/anti-nuke organization in UK has some extremists willing to use terrorism. The action will probably be against an embassy in London. The SAS/Special Air Service try to get the organization infiltrated.
Daring 1980s alternative comedy sketch show that helped launch the careers of a number of British comedians. Often parodies the channel it aired on. Recurring characters include Terry and Wang-Wang - a pair of swearing Pandas.

Apart from the British SAS, "Who Dares Wins" is also the motto for the Belgium 1st Parachutist Battalion; the Hong Kong Special Duties Unit; the Greek 1st Raider / Paratrooper Brigade; the Rhodesian Special Air Service; the French 1st Marine Infantry Parachute Regiment; the Israeli Sayeret Matkal Shachak Armored Battalion (the 196th Battalion / 460th Armored Brigade); and also for both the Australian and New Zealand Special Air Service (SAS) Regiments. All have some kind of historical tie or connection with the British SAS. See more »
A hovercraft is shown arriving, cars are then shown passing through customs. However the hovercraft shown (an SRN-6) is a passenger-only model and is far too small to carry cars. See more »
When the SAS is called upon to do what we're trained to do, we have been likened to a surgeon cutting out a cancer. It's a filthy and difficult job. We don't like doing it, but it's our duty.

I read the book that inspired this film, 'The Tiptoe Boys,' and to be honest, I prefer the film to the book, which is unusual. The movie is a bit over-long, but the characters are quite well developed and the action sequences are among the best in any UK production and highly realistic. The legendary Roy 'Get Carter' Budd provides the score and we have a minor 80s action classic. Without doubt the assault at The Mews is outstanding and I will never forget the rush the first time I saw it. 'You don't muck (sic) about with the SAS...'
