HonkWatch #055: Tough Love (E2)

A cut above the average ITV police procedural two-parter, this: it’s Tough Love, with Ray Winstone as mediocre detective Lenny Milton, whose best mate is his charismatic and more successful boss, DCI Mike Love (Adrian Dunbar). To say much more would nudge too much at the plot, but if you like grim and unhappy dramas where coppers are arseholes (and let’s face it, I am), you may well enjoy this. Throw into the mix director David Defence Of The Realm Drury and solid supporting performances, and it’s a decently dour couple of hours.

On the honking tip, here we find Lenny attending to his morning emetic aerobics after being stitched up in a particularly unpleasant way.
