The Professionals, but without the charm of Bodie and Doyle
24 April 2003 | by modiusSee all my reviews

I'm not a fan of either Nick Berry or Stephen Tompkinson - and regardless how much the BBC tries to ram down the throat that these two guys shouldn't be messed with - I just don't buy Nick Berry as a hardman. I don't care how much melodramatic music, lighting or story they pump into the script I just smirk as an unshaven Berry tries to con his way into every eb of the episode's bad guy.

To its credit, the writing isn't bad but the idea's been done many times before - such as "Thief Takers", "99-1", "The Knock" and the inevitable comparison to "The Professionals", which I find quite bemusing.

Sure there's action sequences, stunts and the bravado of these Bodie and Doyle wannabe's - but somehow I just don't care about the characters as much as I want to. I care more about Berry's family and Berry's view on fathership than what he does to sting a drug baron.

Anyway, its not bad for what it is. Another Professionals type show. Shame it doesn't have the charm of Bodie and Doyle, but then again - not many shows have.

I don't buy Nick Berry has a hardman, I'm sorry - but I don't.

Overall: 4/10
