Episodes The Sweeney: Big Spender (ITV 13 Mar 1975, with Warren Mitchell) Published 2 years ago on August 16, 2017 In Big Spender Haskins wants Regan to go after the Smith brothers, three brothers he is convinced is responsible for a spate of robberies. Regan is convinced the case is a waste of time as there is nothing to go but when he and Carter end up in a car chase with youngest brother Barry they discover he is carrying £10,000 in cash. Further investigation leads them to Wardle the crooked cashier of a large car park. He and the brothers have a scam that involves fake parking tickets and skimming off large chunks of cash every week. Wardle, a mild mannered accountant, is very much out of his depth. Regan knows he is the key to bringing down the brothers Smith. Godfrey James and Catherine Schell Lots of familiar in this episode, even in minor roles – Crackerjack favourite Peter Glaze has a small part as a bookmaker, Blake’s 7 alumni Sally Knyvette is a sexy secretary and the the three brothers Smith are played by the fabulous Godfrey James, Julian Holloway and Billy Hamon (Hamon was then something of a rising name, a couple of months later he had one of the leads in teen drama The Siege of Golden Hill. Warren Mitchell has the lead guest star role though as crooked businessman Wardle alongside glamorous Catherine Schell as his girl. A dragged up Warren Mitchell – surely the stuff of nightmares. production details UK /ITV – Thames / 1×50 minute episode / Broadcast Thursday 13 March 1975 at 9.00pm Writer: Allan Prior / Director: Viktors Ritelis Series: The Sweeney Season 1 Episode 11 cast John Thaw as Jack Regan Dennis Waterman as George Carter Garfield Morgan as Frank Haskins Warren Mitchell as William Wardle Catherine Schell as Stella Goodman Godfrey James as Charley Smith Julian Holloway as John Smith Billy Hamon as Barry Smith Maureen Pryor as Enid Wardle Peter Armitage as Jacko Peter Glaze as Joe Spratt Sally Knyvette as Angela Allan PriorBilly HamonCatherine SchellGodfrey JamesITVJulian HollowayPeter ArmitageSally KnyvetteThamesThe SweeneyViktors RitelisWarren Mitchell Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes14 hours ago Bring It!: Breaking the Curse of the B-Squad (S5EP20 Lifetime Thurs 28 Feb 2019) Breaking the Curse of the B-Squad: Alumni Kayla and Sunjai arrive at the Dollhouse to help the B-Squad break their...
