The Professionals

Long Shot - S1-E11

Plot hole: Surely it would have made more sense for CI5 to have contacted the demolition team at the girl's hideout, instead of dodging crashing materials and great big demolition balls, ready to smash them to pieces at any moment. (However, this would not have made for as exciting a scene as Bodie and Doyle risking their lives to save the female in distress).

Bodie says that Cowley had ordered him and Doyle to stay away from Turvey before CI5 operative Tony Miller was killed. In fact it was AFTER Miller was assassinated.

Trivia

This, the first ever episode of the series, was first broadcast on ITV on December 30th 1977. It was repeated on ITV in 1979. Some time after this, a cut was made, which has endured on all subsequent UK TV transmissions: Just prior to the title sequence, we see Nesbitt hand Susan some drugs. In the original broadcast we then see Susan tightening her belt around her arm. Using Nesbitt's cigarette lighter to sterilise a needle, she then "shoots up" (injects the drugs in her arm). The excision may have come about because of a tightening up of censorship rules by the Independent Broadcasting Authority about the explicit use of illegal drugs on TV. However, the missing segment has been restored for the 2002 DVD release.
