Summary
"The Sweeney is the Flying Squad. It is a name derived from Cockney rhyming slang (Sweeney Todd = Flying Squad), used by police and underworld alike to refer to this highly mobile force of top London crime-busters. The revolutionary series that introduced a new kind of police drama, The Sweeney depicts the violent clashes between the Flying Squad and the deadly world of organized crime. Detective Inspector Jack Regan (John Thaw - Inspector Morse) is the total professional, a 24-hours-a-day cop whose commitment to his job has already led to the break-up of his marriage. Regan's partner, Detective Sergeant George Carter (Dennis Waterman - Minder), is a sharp, South London Cockney. Together, Regan and Carter lead a unit of skilled detectives who infiltrate and bust up London's criminal underworld. The epitome of 1970's style and attitudes, The Sweeney is action-packed with exciting car chases, fistfights, boozing, break-ins, gunfire, brash dialogue and a multitude of talented guest actors"--Container
