Tough Love (ITV 2000, Adrian Dunbar, Ray Winstone)

Published

on

Thriller Tough Love followed high flying Detective Chief Inspector Michael Love (very popular in the north for bringing down the crime figures) who finds his career on the line when an inquiry into corruption is started against him.

Matters are further heightened because it’s his best friend DC Lenny Milton who is investigating. There was a sequel in July 2002 called Lenny Blue.

Winstone said of the production “Tough Love is not the normal cop show. It’s an intelligent script that does not treat the audience like idiots,”

He also talked about how the storyline throws up dilemmas met by everyone in real life. “You can forgive acquaintances, but you can’t forgive a friend.” Ray added. “The drama examines the reactions of a friend asked to doubt his close mate. I used an incident in real life to help play the part. I’m a good guy and bad guy to a point, and I like the part because of this.”
