If you lived in England in th 80s you knew this show well. It was an excellent show and it still is today. Its hard hitting and the characters are quite tough. It ran along the same sort of theme as Starsky and hutch but these guys were super tough ex military (commando/sas) who became part of a crime fighting CI5 unit. They delt mainly in terrorism and arms dealing. There was Bodie, the tough, robust, ladies man, ex boxer type who was a crack shot. Then there was Doyle the curly haired mans man, take no crap type. They were led by Cowley who didnt accept any excuse for messing up an operation. Most episodes were set in and around London and its great to see what it was like back then.
Its still on today on sky in the UK and it hasnt lost its appeal to me at all.
