Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In this six-part British miniseries, locksmith Roland Pierce (Warren Clarke) was shaken out of his middle-class complacency when his ex-wife was nearly killed in a robbery attempt. Although the police were certain that the culprit was a local junkie, their apparent indifference to the victim prompted Pierce to become a one-man vigilante force. Alas, Pierce's quest for justice only results in more grief for himself, his former wife, and his estranged daughter. The Locksmith was telecast by BBC1 beginning September 25, 1997.
