Thief Takers

Show Summary

Welcome to the Thief Takers guide at TV.com. When Thames Television lost its London weekday franchise to the upstart Carlton, it continued to provide programming for the ITV network, notably The Bill. Thief Takers was Carlton's own take on the police drama series that had begun to dominate British scheduling in the 1990s. Thief Takers told the story of the Armed Robbery Squad or Flying Squad, as featured in the unmatched The Sweeney, another Thames production. This new post-waterhed show was action-packed, full of car chases and explosions, but leavened with a sprinkling of soap-style insights into the private lives of its officers. Thief Takers ran for three seasons.
