TV Gentleman Thief (BBC-1 2001, Nigel Havers, Michael French) Published 4 weeks ago on May 18, 2019 Crime drama Gentleman Thief was something of a misfire in it’s attempt to revive E.W. Hornungs Raffles character it saw the gentleman thief getting involved in a murder plot after stealing a giant ruby. Clearly a pilot for a proposed series which never emerged it played fast and loose with the character of Raffles updating the time period slightly and getting rid of the dependable but somewhat silly Bunny Manders and bringing in a new character called Ellis McBride. production details cast NIGEL HAVERS as AJ Raffles MICHAEL FRENCH as Ellis Bride MADELEINE WORRALL as Mags JOHN SHRAPNEL as Monty Sinclair FRANCES BARBER as Julia Sinclair DAVE HILL as Frank Banning JOHN MILLS as Arthur Rosehip TIM BARLOW as Benjamin Crook ANNETTE BADLAND as Mrs Pinkton MATTHEW GRAHAM as Executioner HARRY EDEN as Davie Barnett NIKKI SNODE as Paper Vendor FRANCIS CRAMPSIE as Prison Guard JONATHAN LINSLEY as East End Brute JONATHAN OLIVER as Priest DANIEL FENTON as Painist at Omega DOMINIC COOPER as PC Merrifield crew Writer: Matthew Graham Director: Justin Hardy UK / BBC One / 1×60 minutes / Broadcast 24 June 2001 at 9.00pm BBCCrime And MysteryDave HillDramaFrances BarberJohn MillsJohn ShrapnelMatthew GrahamMichael FrenchNigel Havers Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes16 hours ago Top Gear Season 27 Premieres Sun 16 Jun 2019 on BBC Two New series.
