An ex-cop, an ex-soldier. Differing backgrounds, contrasting personalities, radical methods - one common goal - to tackle the increasing wave of violent crime, thwart the actions of criminals, terrorists & stamp out corruption - by any means necessary. Answerable only to George Cowley, head of CI5, Bodie & Doyle have the best at their disposable - with a minimum of red tape.
Violent actions for violent times - THE PROFESSIONALS have been assigned. Leaping onto television screens in 1978, THE PROFESSIONALS, created by Brian Clemens, provided a lethal mix of serious crime, dangerous missions, fast cars, funky music & best of all, non-stop action. The partnership of Martin Shaw & Lewis Collins with veteran actor Gordon Jackson proved a popular combination with audiences, running for 5 series until 1982.
