The Benji and Nick Show – The Sweeney

Out this weekend in The Benji and Nick Show, the boys are chatting about The Sweeney, a 1970s television police drama broadcast on ITV. The Sweeney stars John Thaw and Dennis Waterman as two members of the Flying Squad, a branch of the Metropolitan Police that specialises in tackling armed robbery and violent crimes in London.

The name sweeney comes from sweeney todd, Cockney rhyming slang for flying squad.
