I have this on DVD and remember when it first came on ITV in 1998. It stars Jonathan Cake (Mosley), Susan Vidler (Trainspotting) and Adrian Dunbar (The Crying Game, Cracker). In my opinion, this is what the Sweeney film should have been like - raw, hard and gritty. In this mini-series, there were some disturbing moments but it was a highly riveting and pulsating thriller.
"What was I thinking of, hitting him? Nothing. No, I know. I hate him! I hate his guts, I hate everything he stands for with his PACE and his plus and his statements of purpose and his smiling at the punters and his have a nice day! I mean when was the last time he ever nicked anybody, eh? A real villain! When was the last time he ever put himself on the line?"
