Good old fashioned robbers and racists cops
18 January 2018 | by marcus-11687See all my reviews

ITV drama at its ground-breaking best. Features Harris as a detective squaring up to not just organised crime but job-impeding racism within the force.

One memorable scene has him throwing an African tribal spare and impaling a villain.
