Richard E. Grant,
Duck Patrol is a gentle old fashioned comedy about the River Police on the Thames. This is NOT the Sweeney on water, more like a relaxing way for the officers to spend 8 hours cruising between places where they can socialise. The star of the show is Richard Wilson as 'Prof' an elderly Constable who has seen it all and done it all. A young Constable played the now famous David Tennant, is 'Darwin' a bit of a nerd, and miles away from his Casonova character. Samantha Beckinsdale, is the female lead as Woman Constable ' Marilyn ' Monroe. The Sergeant should have been retired years ago and the rest of the staff apart from 'Hero' played by Craig Fairbrass, are less than enthusiastic. This is a must for anybody who likes messing about in boats. Only one series was made and there should have been more.
