Dir: John Duigan
Starring: Steve Coogan and Jenny Agutter
A bumbling probation officer clears his name after being framed by a corrupt policeman
This decent comedy which, despite the title actually sees Steve Coogan play the part of a probation officer, is filmed largely in Manchester, and has a few railway shots. There is a distant view of a Class 142 ‘Pacer’ DMU crossing the River Irwell Bridge just south of Manchester Victoria station and a distant shot of a Brush single-deck tram on the seafront in Blackpool. There is also an establishing shot of Manchester Central Library in St. Peters Square and just passing out of shot to the right of the picture is the rear of 2000 series T68 Tram No. 2001. The deleted scenes available on the DVD feature a lengthy scene that was filmed onboard 1000 series T68 Tram No.1019.
