Episodes The Sweeney: The Bigger They Are (ITV 26 Oct 1978, with Colin Jeavons) Published 1 year ago on October 26, 2017 In The Bigger They Are, Gold, a prominent establishment figure is being blackmailed over a massacre he took part in in Malaya during the conflict there. He persuades his old army boss Masterson to help him retrieve the incriminating documents and photos that are being used against him. Masterson though, very much has his own agenda. A difficult case for Regan and Carter, their stand in boss DCI Anderson (yes Haskins is away again) wants things done his way and Special Branch man Grey also has his own reasons for keeping an eye on proceedings. “Look George it’s my turn to wear the leather jacket…” The casting is pretty good with Colin Jeavons as Gold and Donald Burton as Special Branch man Grey whilst Tony Steedman plays to type as Masterson. We thought there was only leather jacket being shared by Regan and Carter, but no Regan has his own. production details UK / ITV – Thames / 1×50 minute episode / Broadcast Thursday 26 October 1978 at 9.00pm Writer: Tony Hoare / Director: Mike Vardy Series: The Sweeney Season 4 Episode 8 cast John Thaw as Jack Regan Dennis Waterman as George Carter Colin Jeavons as Gold Jenny Runacre as Sharon Donald Burton as Grey Tony Steedman as Masterson Raymond Skipp as Collins Colin McCormack as Wade Ian Collier as Logan Trevor Thomas as Garner Richard Wilson as Detective Chief Inspector Anderson Nick Brimble as Burtonshaw Richard Hampton as Barnes John Carlin as Pierce Colin JeavonsDonald BurtonITVJenny RunacreNick BrimbleThamesThe SweeneyTony SteedmanTV 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.
