It’s days like this when you realize, with a poignant sense of regret, that you are never going to own ‘a lock up’.

WIfe beater wasn't he?

He may have been ( I have no data) but George Carter famously told Regan 'I 'ate blokes that 'it birds.'

Renaissance man, George.

Rula Lenska said as much.

In his words

"It's not difficult for a woman to make a man hit her. She certainly wasn't a beaten wife, she was hit and that’s different."

What a shit.

Maybe stems from him playing George Carter, back in those days coppers could knock the fuck out of people and get away with it.

George! Get my anorak.

indlovubill - 08 May 2022 18:18:35 (#10 of 47)

We're the Sweeney and you're nicked.

Or maybe he was an abusive prick all on his own initiative.

HouseOfLametta - 08 May 2022 18:21:19 (#12 of 47)

we're the Sweeney, son, and we haven't had our dinner.

indlovubill - 08 May 2022 18:22:18 (#13 of 47)

Don't underestimate the role playing, the Sweeney cost Lancashire Police a lot of money in wrecked police cars!

HouseOfLametta - 08 May 2022 18:26:57 (#14 of 47)

put your trousers on, you're nicked.

Breakfast FFS.

WIfe beater wasn't he?

Yep. Couldn’t handle having a wife who was both better-looking and more intelligent than him.

We're The Sweeney. Give yourselves up. You are surrounded by armed bastards. It's 1973, nearly tea time, and I'm 'aving spaghetti hoops. On toast.

That's Gene Hunt.

Sweeny was having a bottle of Bells (Cooking whisky) in the bottom drawer of the office filing cabinet.

They never drove the police car but had a dedicated driver to force the slags to crash, after driving through some cardboard boxes.

<sad Sweeney closing theme plays>

HorstVogel - 08 May 2022 19:45:43 (#20 of 47)

I remember him not only from the Sweeney and Minder, but also The World Cup: A Captain's Tale
