Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The seriocomic British series The Sharp End starred Gwen Taylor as Celia Forrest, a recent widow. Forced by financial considerations to take charge of her late husband's debt-collecting agency, Celia met with strong opposition from her vicious business rival Andy Barras (Philip Martin Brown). Acting as Celia's combination bodyguard and troubleshooter was illiterate indigent Carmichael (James Cosmo), whose muscles extended to his head. The eight 50-minute installments of The Sharp End aired over BBC1 from April 12 to May 31, 1991.
