Transferred from GMP February 1980 after a prolific 12 year period at A-Division Manchester. Reasons for transfer remain personal but I suspect DCI Hunt felt that after the break-up of his marriage and the untimely death of his long-serving Detective Inspector, Sam Tyler, that his tenure in the North had reached its natural conclusion. Relocated to the Met bringing with him two of the officers from his division.

I welcome this in the spirit of a cross-pollination of experiences and ideas between forces that is so encouraged by our incumbent Chief Commissioner. DCI Hunt is a shining example of the "doer". A proactive officer who instils a strong sense of loyalty from his subordinates even if at times he fails to show due deference to his seniors. To be blunt, DCI Hunt can be a cheeky bastard with a defiant stare that I once noticed in a Labrador of my wife's. Said Labrador (Suki) was eventually destroyed when she bit me on the hand.

I am glad to say that no such fate will befall DCI Hunt provided he realizes that he is not a lone maverick but part of a team. A club if you will. Or indeed a fraternity. The sooner he accepts this, the better. A tendency to apprehend with violent prejudice. Provided his charge sheet remains healthy, I am prepared merely to observe such activity at this time. But DCI Hunt must understand that the Metropolitan Police Force is under public and federal scrutiny as never before.

Hobbies appear to be drinking and darts, neither of which interferes with his work as a senior CID officer.

Report compiled by Chief Superintendent Mackintosh.

No problem

Sky 1 interview about 'Treasure Island'

Quote:


Describe Captain Smollett -

He's the captain of the Hispaniola and he's engaged on sealed orders by Squire Trelawney [Rupert Penry-Jones] to sail the ship over to the island. The reason he's on sealed orders is because Trelawney doesn't want him to know that they are on a mission to nick treasure. Initially Smollett refuses to sail the ship on the grounds that he doesn't know the crew and it seems like a bit of a dodgy set up, but then he is bribed by Trelawney and he doubles his money. So really he's as bad as the rest of them at that point. But during the course of the journey he becomes a sort of moral centrepiece of the story.

What intrigued you about this adaptation?

Five weeks in Puerto Rico straight after Christmas basically, if truth be told! I jest. It's just a classic story isn't it and I knew that there was going be a decent budget to do it properly. If I'm really honest I thought this could be quite fun and maybe it'll be something that my kids will be able to watch for once. Everything I've done they are too young to see, really. They see all the hype that goes with it but in this case they can actually see the finished product. The only thing is I've got two girls, and this is all about pirates. I'll just have to hope they can suspend their girly-dom for two hours.

How was the shoot?

It was fun but it was a tough shoot. Like all things, when you're filming abroad, you know you've got a whole extra load of complications. We shot in Dublin before Christmas and then we had to change crew for Puerto Rico. That's a tough one for everybody to negotiate.

How are your sea legs? As captain you must have spent more time on the ship than most?

Oh yeah, in fact I seem to spend a lot of time filming in boats in general since Mad Dogs. It's written in my contract: I've got to work with big boats. Actually a lot of the filming on the boat in Puerto Rico was stationary, but we did do one shot just off the pier, so we got to go out and do a sortie on the sail boat, and that was fantastic. I was pretending to give orders – I am supposed to be the Captain after all.

What did you make of the changes to your character from the book?

Do you know, I didn't really pay it too much attention? I got the book, I started reading it and then I thought, 'I know - there's this thing called the internet. Thank you Wikipedia! Captain Smollett, Treasure Island – images, Dong! That'll do.' What I do know is I've seen the Muppets Treasure Island, and it's good. Kermit the Frog played Captain Smollett and he was my main inspiration!

How was your costume?

Not pleasant. All heavy fabrics, three layers, either too cold or boiling hot and incredibly uncomfortable. I hate wearing period costume. I don't know how anybody won wars. I think it was the ones who got dressed quickest. And so many buttons - every time you sit down, they pop off. Drives you mad. And the most uncomfortable shoes in the history of shoes. Buckles are not my favourite thing.
