This classic series from the 1980s and 90s sees the late Michael Elphick star in arguably his best-loved role. Invalided out of the West Midlands Fire Service, Ken Boon teams up with old friend and fellow former "smokey" Harry Crawford to run courier service Texas Rangers, followed by Crawford Boon Security; their helpmates include affable biker Rocky (Neil Morrissey in his first major TV role) and DC Margaret Daly (Amanda Burton). Look out for guest stars like Brian Blessed, Daniel Craig, Dennis Waterman, Susannah York, Christopher Eccleston, Jenny Agutter and Leslie Phillips to name only a few.
