DENNIS WATERMAN GETS ROMANTIC ON 'THE SWEENEY: DRAG ACT'

Title: THE SWEENEY: DRAG ACT Year: 1978 Rating: ***

Early on in THE SWEENEY, Dennis Waterman's Sgt. Carter, the young, more vulnerable partner of hot-tempered John Thaw's Inspector Regan, has a wife... who asked for more screen-time and money, and was run over by a car (the episode fitfully titled HIT AND RUN), thereafter making Carter almost as much a womanizer as Regan...

Until the final season's DRAG ACT, Carter's romantic episode paired with pretty Katy Fahy as PC Julie Kingdom (a rookie with an energetic male partner about to get credit for stolen lorries carrying brandy under a miffed Regan's nose)... which includes one of those date montage sequences in a filler episode that, like many, bookends the more intense and violent action upfront and in the finale, and while phoned-in is not altogether awful.
