Superb Early 80's Cockney Drama,
This review is from: Hazell - The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
As a fan of shows from the 70s/80s i had thought about buying Hazell for a while, i was intrigued to hear that the show was co-written by former England Manager Terry Venables.
Actually he only co-wrote 2 of the 22 episodes. The others were written by established writers of the time including former Sweeney/Minder writers inc Tony Hoare, Trevor Preston and Richard Harris.
It is great seeing how London looked 30 years ago and it is good to spot famous actors including Michael Elphick, Larry Lamb, Ken Hutchinson and Dave King who all appear throughout the 2 series.
Nicholas Ball is terrific as private eye James Hazell and Roddy McMillan and Desmond McNamara are great as Choc Minty and Cousin Tel
Overall if you liked Minder you will love Hazell.
