The Sweeney was the first really modern police-based series on
British television. Previously, most dramas featuring the police had
shied away from showing 'coppers' as fallible human beings. The
police in The Sweeney were a million miles away from those of the
BBC's cosy world of Dixon of Dock Green, or even from the BBC's
slightly more realistic Z Cars. They were brutal and violent in
dealing with London's hardened criminals, and prone to cutting
corners and bending laws. The series showed a somewhat more
realistic side of the police which often had a disregard for
authority, rules and the 'system', as long it got the job done.
Until The Sweeney this had been a subject largely whitewashed by
It was a fast-paced edge-of-your-seat action series, depicting the
Squad's relentless battle against armed robbery; but it nevertheless
included a substantial degree of humour.
For the time, it had a high degree of graphic on-screen violence and
the episodes had a high number of on-screen deaths.
