Tower Bridge in the 'Armchair Cinema' production Regan (1974) [Pilot for The Sweeney]
From Paul Lewis's review at DVD Compare:
Predominantly shot in and around Butler’s Wharf, Tower Bridge and Richmond, Regan opens in a pub where Detective Sergeant Alan Cowley (Del Baker) is undercover, investigating the Mallory ‘firm’. Cowley inadvisedly follows a group of criminals out of the pub and into a secluded location, where he is beaten and eventually pushed out of a high window. Regan’s titles play over a shot of Cowley’s body by the Thames, reminiscent of the final shot of Get Carter:
I also thought of Get Carter
when I watched this again recently. Surely an homage
? Likewise, Sgt.
Cowley's body is still lying there as dawn breaks. But viewers are about to discover he is actually still alive:
We see him slowly rise and then stagger towards the nearest street, where he's soon knocked down by a car. Unlucky
