The Bodie Doubles

The Professionals hit the crime-busting trail again yesterday... but not as you know them.

Bodie and Doyle are gone. There's not a Ford Capri, leather jacket or trouser flare in sight. And for the first time there's a woman - Canadian beauty Lexa Doig - in the team. She'll play a tough nut computer ace in the 13 part series CI5: The Professionals, which starts filming next month.

Equaliser star Edward Woodward, 66, is on £1 million in the role of squad boss, played by the late Gordon Jackson in the original 1977-1983 series.

And Colin Wells will team up with Kal Weber as the new toughies of the £10 million show.

Bodie - 51 year old Lewis Collins - turned down a part. He didn't want to be away from his family for the eight months of filming.

Martin Shaw, 51, who played Doyle, was not approached.

But executive producer Brian Clemens promised, "Our guys will still romance the girls in the good old fashioned way."
