Episodes Bergerac: Roots of Evil (BBC-1 4 Feb 1990, with Geoffrey Palmer) Published 2 years ago on September 29, 2017 In Roots of Evil wealthy businessman Nigel Carter is being terrorised by persons unknown. Two armed men, dressed as local coppers break into his house and take potshots at him (deliberately aiming to miss but scaring him greatly). Jim and the boys turn up but Carter is not particularly interested in giving them any more info than necessary. Jim is suspicious about why Carter doesn’t want their help and digs into his past. Jim learns that years before Carter’s daughter Joanna was kidnapped. Now a young woman she is studying at the Sorbonne but is due to spend the holidays at home on Jersey. Carter is being blackmailed by a group of terrorists who are gun running and want him to pay for their latest consignment. A half million pounds in cash in fact. After Jim tells Joanna about her fathers recent troubles she confronts him and he tells her that he made a deal to get her released from her kidnap ordeal and then reneged on it. Another strong Brian Finch story with Geoffrey Palmer as Carter and the lovely Lynsey Baxter as his daughter. Struan Rodger makes for a strong villain and his side-kick is played by future Eastenders mainstay Steve McFadden. In a rare example for the series the villains get clean away with Jim left unsure whether he has been played by Carter all along. Geoffrey Palmer is Nigel Carter and Lynsey Baxter plays his daughter Joanna. production details UK / BBC One / 1×55 minute episode / Broadcast Sunday 4 February 1990 at 8.05pm Writer: Brian Finch / Director: Richard Spence Series: Bergerac Season 8 Episode 4 cast John Nettles as Det Sgt Jim Bergerac Geoffrey Palmer as Nigel Carter Gary O’Brien as Station PC Struan Rodger as Smith Steve McFadden as Jones John Telfer as Willy Pettit Peter Gallagher as PC Green Sean Arnold as Chief Inspector Crozier David Kershaw as Ben Lomas Terence Alexander as Charlie Hungerford Denis Holmes as Colonel Foster-Biggs Lynsey Baxter as Joanna Carter BBCBergeracBrian FinchGeoffrey PalmerLynsey BaxterRichard SpenceStruan RodgerTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in TV13 hours ago Cutting It (BBC-1 2002-2005, Amanda Holden, Sarah Parish) Comedy drama series.
