KEN HUTCHISON STEALS 'THE SWEENEY' STAY LUCKY EH EPISODE

Ken Hutchison on The Sweeney Year: 1975 Rates: ****

Before playing Mr. Hill in SWEENEY 2, the late STRAW DOGS baddie Ken Hutchison dons a fake blonde wig and mustache, intentionally homage to Robert Shaw from FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE on the SWEENEY episode STAY LUCKY EH, and his character Vincent Vaughan steals money before being delivered to mob boss and Ken's STRAW DOGS leader Peter Vaughan while thwarting patsies Alun Armstrong to Michael Ripper...

One of the few episodes where the heavies get more screen time than John Thaw's Regan and his younger partner Dennis Waterman as Carter... 

An edge tale of backstabbing from the paramount 2nd season, here stolen by Hutchison's villain's villain while another STRAW DOGS antagonist Donald Webster has a scene with Waterman, adding to the number of actors from the Sam Peckinpah cult classic including, in former episodes, T.P. McKenna, Jim Norton and Del Henney. And this particular tale winds up in a fist-fight turned shootout (on a theater stage) where our titular cops simply watch things pan out, like they'd done all along but now up close, and literally.
