Thick As Thieves

John Thaw's career took in just two sitcoms: Yorkshire's Home to Roost (1985-89) and Thick as Thieves, in which he co-starred with Bob Hoskins and Pat Ashton. Created by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais, it ran for just eight episodes. The music is similar in style to the theme from Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads, the duo's other comedy classic. Thick as Thieves is a great title, in every sense: Hoskins is released from prison to find his dim-witted old pal Thaw shacked up with his missus, with hilarious consequences.
