Spender TV Series: 1991 - 1993

Post by yethboth » Fri Mar 20, 2009 5:48 pm

Watched an episode of this on You Tube the other day for the first time and I thought it was quite good. Anyone remember this early 90's British TV Series with Jimmy Nail as a hard as nails Detective Sergeant/Close Protection? I'll probably look for the complete series of this on DVD soon.

Blasphemy!! Spender is brilliant!! I downloaded series 1, 2 and 3 just before christmas and watched them all again. Interesting to see the difference in Newcastle between then and now, quayside particularly is transformed. Funny seeing the cars as well, in the first series he has a black sierra cosworth- the motor to have in the day!

I thought Spender was a pretty good programme. I remember getting a paperback novel originally entitled "Spender" in my Christmas stocking one year. I even remember the theme music!

I thought Spender was a good series... not overly excited about Crocodile Shoes... it was ok, but haven't watched anything newer that he's done...

Auf Weidersen was legendary of course...
