Long Shot
10 December 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Long Shot has some dreadful dubbing in this episode. Did the original soundtrack get damaged?

Bodie and Doyle are on the lookout for a Middle Eastern hitman called Ramos. He has a 100% hit rate a bit like his Real Madrid counterpart with the same name who broke Mo Salah's arm in the 2018 European Champions League final and didn't even get a booking!

Ironically the actor playing Ramos found enduring fame by playing a character called Trigger in Only Fools and Horses.

Ramos has kidnapped a millionaire's daughter, he holds her hostage as insurance while he plans to kill Cowley.

CI5 think the former former US Secretary of state is the real target leaving Cowley in danger. A burglar stumbles onto Ramos's whereabouts.

Some good knockabout stuff by Bodie and Doyle as they try to chat up an female martial arts expert. There was no need for that gratuitous shot of Cowley wearing just a towel though.
