Regan on Blu-ray in October

21 Sepotember 2011

Jack Regan is a good copper, but his tough, intuitive style is becoming unfashionable in a Scotland Yard seeking a new image. When a policeman is mysteriously murdered, Regan breaks all the rules to find the killer, but he finds there are men in the flying squad prepared, and more than willing, to break him.

Rough, tough and politically incorrect in the way that only the best '70s dramas can be, Regan was another prestige entry in ITV's showcase drama series Armchair Theatre, and its popularity led directly to The Sweeney, one of the major television successes of the last fifty years. Featuring John Thaw as the irascible Detective Inspector Regan and Dennis Waterman as his loyal 'oppo', Detective Sergeant Carter, Regan was an immediate critical and ratings hit, resulting in four series of The Sweeney and two successful feature films.

Previously available on a Network DVD, Regan has been remastered in high definition for a Blu-ray only release on 10th October 2011 from Network Releasing at the RRP of £19.99.

The disc will feature Dolby 5.1 surround, original mono and music-only tracks, and the following extras:

  • Commentary with Dennis Waterman, producer Ted Childs and director Tom Clegg;
  • Interview with Ian Kennedy Martin.
