Format: DVD
For all you Pro.... fans season 4 dvd set is best summed up by saying it's mostly a hit with a few misses.
16 episodes, (about half of which were taken from the 1980 recording block), which for many fans represented an artistic noir for this long running series. Both Lewis Collins and Martin Shaw had made no secret of the fact that they weren't exactly kindered spirits, Martin Shaw especially expressing dissatisfaction with the show, he would later go on record to state that the show was "rubbish".
It is perhaps ironic then that, in all that turmoil, some of the most fondly remembered episodes were filmed. Operation Sussie, Foxhole On a Roof, and the all time classic episode -Discovered in a Graveyard, (when Ray Doyle is seriously wounded and questions whether he wants to continue living, through a series of hallucinations!!), all really strong stuff, and a real return to the spirit of the earlier episodes.
On the negative side, it is a shame to see that there was no definate ending to the series, the last episode to be shown was "No stone" which pulled in 16 million viewers on its original broadcast date of Feb 1983. This episode left a big question mark hanging over the series, perhaps the shows makers thought that CI5 may return some day.
By the time this series was screened, all three of its stars were peaking in terms of success- even the cars had, and still have!, cult status. Who can forget those silver and gold Ford Capri's!!.
If your Professionals fan and you've got the previous three DVD sets, then you're bound to purchase this. A fantastic series which ran for six years- but should have run for longer!.
This is true testiment to what a classic cop show should be made of!.

I came to this series having seen Lewis Collins in "Who Dares Wins" and I am so glad that I did. Even though it began before I was born I think "The Professionals" is one of the best shows us Brits have ever made. The chemistry between the leads is great - Lewis Collins and Martin Shaw spark well off each other, and both have wonderful chemistry with Gordon Jackson - almost like a father and his sons. Not all the episodes are fantastic but the strong far outweighs the weak. I recommend anyone who likes action and buddy-buddy banter to check it out.

Series four of the great show The Professionals continues the now established and successful adventures of CI5 with Cowley, Doyle and Bodie.
The entire fourth series is presented nicely in this excellent DVD set. The Professionals is an exciting series from the 1970s. The DVD sets of all four seasons are excellent. This fourth series is very good.

The Professionals had been created by Albert Fennel and Brain Clemens after a long history in British TV with successful series in like The Avengers in the 1960s and The New Avengers a couple of years earlier. They had used the same composer, Laurie Johnson to compose the music for those shows and now again for the Professionals. Series one and two each had 14 episodes of which one episode from series one had not been screened.
This new season Three also has 14 episodes, all of which were transmitted. The series was produced by Raymond Menmuir.
Albert Fennell, Brian Clemens and composer Laurie Johnson had worked together in the 1960s and together had created MK1 productions to make the New Avengers. The same team as MK1 productions now produced The Professionals.

Criminal Intelligence 5, or CI5 is a special branch of British Law that deals with crime of a serious nature that go beyond the capability of the police. It is a Unit that is instructed by the Home Secretary.
CI5 is fictitious but it enabled the writers to give our heroes a wide variety of situations to deal with.
It has similar appearance to the real MI5 or CID but being fictitious also gave the show more artistic licence that the portrayal of the Flying Squad in The Sweeney. CI5 deal with espionage, cold war problems, terrorists, civil unrest, and large-scale crime.
