Storyline

Whilst Danny Keever is on a weekend release from prison, a bank robbery takes place. It has the hallmarks of Danny's style and a witness statement also points the finger at him. Regan is unconvinced of Danny's guilt, however, and sets out to find the true thieves, putting him at odds with Haskins, who has a grudge against Danny from the past. Written by don @ minifie-1

Dim Recollection
3 March 2019 | by TheFearmakersSee all my reviews

Pretty mellow episode. Warren Clarke, Dim from Clockwork Orange, deserved a bit more edge to his character; a pawn, basically, used by his supposed mates who rob a bank while he's nearby at a stock car race, which we see banging-up moments of in the beginning, and a great song by John Moran titled "Rebel" spices things up a bit. But mostly it's a fair episode; cops going from place to place asking questions.
