Making Waves

TWENTY years have passed since actor Martin Shaw - as agent Bodie - drove his Ford Capri round and round in circles beneath flyovers in The Professionals. Yet the ghost of his self-inflicted bubble-perm continues to haunt some of that show's veterans, now working on the remake, CI5 - The Professionals. In some quarters there has been the subliminal fear that the show's new agents, Curtis and Keel (Kal Weber and Colin Wells, pictured with Lexa Doig as Tina), might feel moved to procure similarly unwarranted and ghastly image changes.

"Martin Shaw went out one day," confides Professionals creator and executive producer Brian Clemens, "had his hair done like that and then spent the next few years complaining that we had made him do it." Happily, the new actors do not seem as wilful.

"Kal has had his hair cut to avoid on-screen resemblance to Colin," Clemens adds. "But they are approaching their roles with vastly different character backgrounds."
