Storyline

The young, bright, and decent London tramp Alan Terry (Rupert Graves) accidentally witnesses a mob execution. He gets away, but leaves enough evidence for them to come looking for him amongst the homeless, and most violently: his older best friend is killed by arson. It turns out that Matheson (Sir Michael Gambon), the police Detective Inspector in charge of the murder investigation, is in cahoots with mob boss Adolfo Cavani (Franco Nero), and actually on Alan's trace, with the firm intent to eliminate him. The only one who may actually help Alan is a female reporter. Written by KGF Vissers

Odd title.... but I'd certainly watch it again
13 March 2005 | by michaelxharrisSee all my reviews

I too caught this about midnight, not aware it was being shown and had missed first 15 minutes but thoroughly enjoyed its Britishness. Being a Londoner I found it captured the essence of a London police drama, albeit very stereotypically but with a charm long forgotten, but the locations were wonderfully captured and made me feel quite homesick (even though i'm a North Londoner by birth), it really did remind me of The Lavender Hill Mob or Dixon of Dock Green. It also reminded me of an episode from The Sweeney or dare I say it The Bill and these programmes still have great following. Rupert Graves gave a splendid performance as did the whole cast and wish I had seen it when first shown.
