Jack Regan is a hard edged detective in the Flying Squad of London's Metropolitan Police. He pursues villains by methods which are underhanded and often illegal, frequently violent, and more often than not, successful.
This was a great series, though I think it didn't last very long. Michael Gambon was quite outstanding as I recall, strange that it took so long for him to make an impression on audiences or casting people. As I remember each episode was a separate story concerning the Kerr family in the 16th cent Scottish border country. The history of Scotland was handled brilliantly, and with a great deal more accuracy than the very annoying Mel Gibson version. The particular princess of France in Braveheart was actually a child at the time, and what history book has Edward 1 pushing Piers Gaviston out of a window may I ask ? Ah I forgot artistic licence, silly old me.
