No, but I'm sure I've read excerpts from articles about the Krays and so on. My best friend comes from Bermondsey. Maybe she's related!!

Not so intelligent that he couldn't keep away from crime though. If a person has any brains, they'll use them wisely.

They were, yes, although both got married as well. Think Ronnie's was more a trophy thing though.

I think one of the reasons for that's because crime dramas these days're pretty advanced from how they used to be. You get real forensic info cropping up, even though it's all acted, and although I'm personally not too interested in all the blood and gore bits, a lot of folk ARE. A good who-dunnit can be great, but there're too many of these things on TV. I DO think that it has some impact on youngsters watching them, even if it's to numb their brains to the horror of what goes on around the world. : (
