Hi Jack

The immortal Detective Inspector Jack Regan, Flying Squad, makes his entrance in 'Regan', the 1974 'Armchair Theatre' episode that led to 'The Sweeney'. His first line? 'Get your trousers on, you're nicked'.


  1. And so begins the magic of 'The Sweeney' !
    The perfect antidote to Jack's last scene in the final episode.
    I recently re-watched the entire series, but put the last episode off due to the inevitable sadness it would bring. I faced it like a man a couple of weeks back, but found myself experiencing strange "feelings" and "emotions" as the story drew to a close. I knew there must have been a heart in me somewhere, but it took Jack Regan to bring it out.

    Fantastic show. Just re-watching myself at the moment, but still only on series two.
