TV: T is for...


ULTRA-VIOLENT SWEENEY-LITE copperama binned by the Beeb when it proved too much for the public to stomach. Strong on aggro, weak on plot and characterisation, it starred PATRICK MOWER as Detective Superintendent Steve Hackett (a carefully-coiffeured clothes-horse in combat jacket and jeans who looked about as hard as the Milky Bar Kid) and PHILIP “MR SINISTER” MADOC as his boss, Chief Superintendent Tate. Never repeated on terrestrial TV, although this probably has less to do with the blood, snot and teeth quotient than the fact that it was undeniably mindless shite.
