Episodes The Sweeney: Golden Fleece (ITV 13 Oct 1975, with Patrick Mower) Published 1 year ago on August 31, 2017 In Golden Fleece a pair of thieves are breaking into the houses of wealthy couples and robbing them at gunpoints. The only clue is that one of the pair appears to be Australian. They also seem to have inside knowledge on the people they are targeting. When they think Haskins is getting too close to how they are getting their information they decide to put him out of action by using local villain Wally Vince to set him up with A10 on a fake corruption charge. With Haskins on suspension Regan and Carter have to do a little investigating of their own to try and clear his name. It doesn’t take long to discover that all of the victims had purchased Krugerands from a London clearing house called Warburtons. However unusually for the Sweeney the Aussies manage to get away. Wally Vince also does a runner abroad to Canada meaning the case against Haskins has to be dropped. Patrick Mower and George Layton are the two Aussies Colin and Ray, complete with terrible Aussie accents and drinking copious amounts of Fosters. But it’s a fun dynamic between the pair though. George has now moved from the home he had with Alison and is living in a basement flat. Haskins is set up by Wally Vince and arrested by Philip Madoc as Inspector Pettiford of A10. The TV Times for the week had a nice two page feature on former Special Branch star Patrick Mower, focusing on the sporting aspect of the character he plays in this episode. Besides Mower and Layton there is excellent support work from Anne Stallybrass as Doreen Haskins, Madhav Sharma as the dodgy Earle and Cheryl Kennedy as his assistant. Philip Madoc also has a prominent role as Pettiford, the brusque A10 investigator. There was a connection with another Thames classic in this episode too with Michael Latimer and Martin Wyldeck, who both worked on the first two seasons of Van Der Valk together. Cheryl Kennedy as is the key link between Colin and Ray and Warburtons. classic quote “Right Mr Cowley, your money or your wife… On second thoughts we’ll just settle for the money.” production details UK / ITV – Thames / 1×50 minute episode / Broadcast Monday 13 October 1975 at 9.00pm Writer: Roger Marshall / Director: David Wickes Series: The Sweeney Season 2 Episode 7 cast John Thaw as Regan Dennis Waterman as Carter Garfield Morgan as Haskins Patrick Mower as Colin George Layton as Ray Cheryl Kennedy as Judy Collier Anne Stallybrass as Doreen Haskins Philip Madoc as Pettiford Madhav Sharma as Earle Peter Godfrey as Wally Vince Michael Latimer as Jackman Nicholas Smith as Simpkins Martin Wyldeck as Cowley Damaris Hayman as Mrs Cowley Allyson Rees as Au Pair Jennifer Thanisch as Susie Regan Anne StallybrassCheryl KennedyDavid WickesGeorge LaytonITVMadhav SharmaMartin WyldeckMichael LatimerNicholas SmithPatrick MowerPhilip MadicRoger MarshallThamesThe SweeneyTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes15 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...
