Last Site Update: 15th August 2014
You are operative number to enlist since this department was founded on 24th June 1996.
Hi and welcome to the site dedicated to the brilliant, controversial, fast-paced, infamous, hard-hitting, all-action, explosive, long-running cult British crime-action-drama The Professionals. (Phew!)
The aim of the site is to provide the 'ultimate', most comprehensive online reference source for the show. To that end I remain deeply indebted to many of the show's fans and those directly connected with the show for the vast quantities of information I have received!
The views expressed here are independent and not necessarily shared by London Weekend Television, Mark 1 Productions or David Wickes Television. However Mark 1's joint directors Brian Clemens and Laurie Johnson have kindly taken notice and given the site their seal of approval – hence the "Authorised" tag! I remain deeply indebted to Brian and Laurie's "archivist" and fellow fan, Dave Rogers!
