Goofs

In the scene where Mr de Courcy's Rolls Royce is ambushed, Garret's orange Porsche is seen through the Rolls's rear window as it is about to overtake. At this point the cars are on a dual-carriageway. This is immediately followed by a shot of both cars from a camera car ahead of them, as the Porsche continues to overtake, but they are now on a single-carriageway country lane. See more »

Unusual episode
31 January 2019 | by heathblairSee all my reviews

Well written and interesting installment with an unusually strong visual sense, for instance the shot of Dennis Waterman in the back of a car toward the end is remarkable for the time. Well acted all around with a particularly touching performance from David Lodge. One of the best Sweeneys I've seen.
