Eddie Santini goes out with a bang, 26 Sept. 2002
PC Eddie Santini was one of the most enigmatic thief-takers ever to appear on "The Bill", along with such notables as DS John Bolton and DS Don Beech. This is the highly dramatic conclusion to this character's role on "The Bill" as well as to a singular and remarkable storyline which developed over the course of two years. "Old Flame" which is the first episode to appear on this tape reunites Santini with DS Rosie Fox whom he first admired, later almost stalked and finally victimised along with most of Sun Hill. She is out for revenge and alone suspects his deeper involvement in a mysterious arson. Eddie must not only deal with the criminals with which he has inadvertantly involved himself but also with Fox. Everything gets out of control and in a dramatic conclusion Eddie is arrested for murder. His actual trial occurs some time later and is gripping viewing. Things come to a more than satisfactory conclusion and it is a rare opportunity to observe the many dimensions of this fascinating character, whose motives are never clear cut. This is "The Bill" at its best.
