Episodes The Sweeney: Hit and Run (ITV 29 Sep 1975, with Patrick Troughton) Published 1 year ago on August 29, 2017 In Hit and Run tough gang boss Reg Crofts is concerned that the ex-girlfriend of one of his men, Fowler, wants out. He decides that a nice little hit and run accident to get her out of the way would be the perfect solution. She is a French teacher and teaches at the same school as George’s wife Alison. She has been running a nice little smuggling racket during regular school trips to France. In a terrible mix up when Alison borrows Fowler’s girl’s coat she becomes the target of the hit and run and is left for dead in the street and dies in hospital. It’s devastating for Carter especially there seems to be no clue as to who the driver was – it’s only when he is packing up Alison’s clothes after the funeral that he discovers the coat Alison was wearing. It doesn’t take long for the trail to lead to Crofts. The best scenes are the quiet moments with George and Jack at Carter’s home drinking a bottle of whisky and letting Carter talk it out. There was a nice one page feature on guest star Patrick Troughton in that weeks TV Times (27 Sep 1975) and the fact that he was playing against type as a bad guy. George and Alison have lunch in the park together, a few hours later she is dead. production details UK / ITV – Thames / 1×50 minute episode / Broadcast Monday 29 September 1975 at 9.00pm Writer: Roger Marshall / Director: Mike Vardy Series: The Sweeney Season 2 Episode 5 cast John Thaw as Regan Dennis Waterman as Carter Garfield Morgan as Haskins Gary Waldhorn as Fowler Sheila Ruskin as Judy Patrick Troughton as Crofts Stephanie Turner as Alison Carter Margaret Whiting as Madge Michael Sheard as Mr Penketh James Snell as Johnny Moxom Liz Smith as Landlady Terry Bale as Minicab operator Katherine Parr as Mrs Carter Gary WaldhornITVLiz SmithMichael SheardMike VardyPatrick TroughtonRoger MarshallStephanie TurnerThamesTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes3 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.
