        "We're The Sweeney, son, and we haven't had any dinner."

      • Rough, tough and politically incorrect in the way that only the best 70s drama series can be, The Sweeney is one of the major television successes of the last fifty years. Featuring John Thaw as the irascible Detective Inspector Regan and Dennis Waterman as his loyal 'oppo', Detective Sergeant Carter, this benchmark television series is presented in this definitive collection alongside Regan - the pilot movie - and both feature films.

      • As well as containing brand-new commentaries for both feature films, Regan and the original series are newly remastered and restored with the option to either listen to the new Dolby 5.1 track, the original as-broadcast Mono track or music-only tracks. Other special features on the set are:
