Sharman is a television series starring Clive Owen, based on the "Nick Sharman" books written by London-based author Mark Timlin.

Cast and characters[edit]

Clive Owen plays South London private detective Nick Sharman. Other regulars included John Salthouse as Detective-Inspector Jack Robber, a seedy but cunning police officer, and Roberta Taylor as Aggie. Guest stars included Ray Winstone, Keith Allen and Samantha Janus.

Series overview[edit]

The first episode entitled "The Turnaround", screened in 1995, was based on the book of the same name. The following year a further four episodes screened. Each episode was 90 minutes long, and all except the last were based on novels by Timlin of the same titles; the final episode, which does not appear to have been given an individual title, was an original story, though one scene was taken from the Timlin novel Pretend We're Dead.

Home video release[edit]

The pilot episode was released on VHS. The entire series, including pilot, was released on DVD in 2010.[1]
