character profile
Mervyn ReesMervyn Rees came to London in the early seventies after robbing the wrong Newport bookmakers. He settled in Acton and was soon a key player in the burgeoning, though somewhat anarchic, criminal scene. Recognising that the area was wide open, he brought in some Welsh associates - 'sons of the valleys' - and employing the 'scrum' philosophy (that a tight-knit, loyal and violent bunch of tough lads working will dominate any situation), soon had things sewn up. He married a local girl, Janice, and with the birth of his three sons - JJ, JPR and Gareth - the dominance of the Rees dynasty was assured. A fanatical rugby fan, Mervyn is semi-retired but is still known to put in the odd hour or two 'working' in his basement (or 'torture cellar', as some have referred to it.)
Expecting further information on 17.09.01 at 21.00 BBC TWO. Enter the Garage.
Paul is looking forward to a weekend looking after an empty warehouse (one of Di's repossessions), while Noel is giving it large about his club night - Enter the Garage - held at a secret venue. Events conspire to ensure things don't work out quite as planned.
Further evidence will be available here in the near future. 'orrible competition, screen savers, desktop pictures, etc
