Harrigan Review

Winter, 1974. With the three-day week in full (or less than full) swing and despair gripping the north eastern sink estates he's made his beat, Detective Sergeant Barry Harrigan (Tompkinson) is back to tackle the crime lords infesting his patch.

Original Title:


A bereaved policeman (Stephen Tompkinson) returns to his Newcastle turf in winter 1973. Power cuts and horrid shades of yellow are prominent. The drama can be more glum than compelling, but it’s lifted by highly charged face-offs between law and anarchy.

Gloomily compelling.
