Coping Some Action

THEY'RE ringing in the changes on the police drama front both here and abroad. Former Callan and Breaker Morant star Edward Woodward heads the crime-fighting cast of Channel 7's CI5 The New Professionals (9.30pm, Saturday) a $20 million British sequel series to the old hit The Professionals.

The theme song remains the same as does the series creator Brian Clemens but this time there is no Bodie (Lewis Collins) or Doyle (Martin Shaw). The crack cops drive fast sports cars, wear designer labels and get assigned to cases all over the world, including South Africa, Canada and America. Woodward plays CI5 chief Declan Malone, who heads a young, attractive team, including moody former US Navy fighter pilot Chris Keel (Kal Weber), linguistics whiz Sam Curtis (Colin Wells), while pouting, wide-eyed 24-year-old Lexa Doig, a part-Filipina, part-Canadian stunner, is shapely computer genius Tina Backus.

Directed by David Wickes (The Sweeney, Special Branch ), the first few episodes promise explosive action and hi-tech special effects delivered in a slick, predictable package reminiscent of the Mission Impossible genre.
