    One show that I hadn’t heard of before today’s recommendation.

    Euston Films seemed to try some odd shows when The Sweeney case were busy making the films, like Bringing back Van Der Valk & making it grittier, along with this series, which only ran for one six week series.

    Writer Trevor Preston also Created Fox in 1980 for Euston Films.

    Euston Films certainly knew how to make some gritty, in your face shows and Out was the equivalent of being hit in the face with a baseball bat. Also Tom Bell was the kind of actor who would look hard and menacing even if he was presenting Playschool.
    Later on, Euston Films would create the excellent Widows, where the widows of three gangsters decide to carry on their husbands occupation and take on the gang who kill their husbands. Also it featured Anne Preston, a sort of female Tom Bell, as the hard as nails gang leader Dolly Rawlins.
