LWT‘s Crime Anthology Villains


LWTs Crime Anthology Villains 3
© Words Matteo Sedazzari


Villains is a little gem from 1972, created by Andrew Brown ( co-creator of Manhunt, writer for Armchair Theatre, producer of Prick Up Your Ears, Selling Hitler) aired and commissioned by London Weekend Television.  It is a story about nine criminals who plan and carry out a heist on a bank, it is not ‘the normal’ bank raid, heavies armed with sawn off shot guns screaming at petrified bank tellers to fill the bags and no one will get hurt. No, instead they plan what they believe will be the crime of the century, to tunnel into a bank in London’s EC1 area via a disused ladies toilet over the weekend. With meticulous planning and an array of professionals in their field, the criminals think they will walk away with a windfall that shall set them up for life.  A new life abroad, Spain, Portugal, South America, anywhere other than Old Blighty.

Steven Moffat – The Great TV Swindle

There's a scene in the film of The Krays (1990), where Steven Berkoff, as George Cornell, is infuriated due to the fact that the only name he is hearing on the street is the surname of the twins, Ronnie and Reggie, and the respect it has. In addition, at the start of 2012, that is exactly how I felt when I kept on hearing the name of Stephen Moffat and the media labelling him as genius.
