Episodes The Sweeney: Bait (ITV 19 Oct 1978, with George Sewell) Published 1 year ago on October 24, 2017 In Bait Regan and Carter are on the trail of Vic Tolman and his girl Lynn who have pulled off a series of robberies. Lynn has been posing undercover at a factory to gain inside knowledge and their latest robbery leaves the Squad without a clue. Vic has insisted that the mentally challenged Lennie, who helped the pair on their last job, is now a permanent part of the team but Lynne thinks he is a liability. Meanwhile the Squad do have one clue as they also have Lynn’s young daughter (who is being looked after by another woman) under surveillance. When her daughter then falls ill Lynne looks like she may bring all three of them down. The episode is like a mix between Bonnie and Clyde and Of Mice and Men actually, with a strong performance from Edward Peel as Lennie (so much so that Lennie is named after the similar character in Steinbeck’s novel. George Sewell, who was a regular on the last two seasons of earlier Thames Euston show Special Branch, is Vic Tolman and Barbara Ewing also turns in another of her strong performances, she almost kills Carter in one scene, threatening him with a foot long kitchen knife – George is forced to knock her out with one of his famous right hooks. Judy Buxton made a brief appearance as a toy shop assistant. production details UK / ITV – Thames / 1×50 minute episode / Broadcast Thursday 19 October 1978 at 9.00pm Writer: Trevor Preston / Director: Sid Roberson Series: The Sweeney Season 4 Episode 7 cast John Thaw as Jack Regan Dennis Waterman as George Carter George Sewell as Vic Tolman Barbara Ewing as Joan Di Trevis as Lynn Edward Peel as Lennie Arthur Cox as Roan Eric Dodson as Mr Dodds Alan Hunter as Stoddard Steven Barnes as Dr Marland Judy Buxton as Salesgirl Frederick Bennett as Factory Gatekeeper Alan Leith as Sgt Stern Diana Rowan as Traffic Warden Michael Brodie as Guard Simone Cowdrey as Little Girl Barbara EwingEdward PeelGeorge SewellITVJudy BuxtonSid RobersonThamesThe SweeneyTrevor PrestonTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes21 hours ago Miracle Workers: 12 Days (TBS Tues 26 Feb 2019) 12 Days: A troublesome human complicates Craig and Eliza’s plan, while Sanjay attempts to burnish his credentials.
