Sharman (World ProductionsITV private eye series, 1996)


Shortlived, grimy and formulaic, nevertheless an entertaining vehicle for Clive Owen, this is mostly set in South London.

Episode 1: Take the A Train
I'm struggling to identify the first coach here, but the second is in Kentish Express livery and bodied by Plaxton:
Sharma drives past a parked line of coaches, including a Bova Futura and a Duple Dominant II bodied coach:
London Buses MCW Metrobuses drift in and out of the background:
A cafe scene has a backdrop of London buses, including a glimpsed Routemaster, a VN class Volvo B10B/Northern Counties route branded for route 88 'The Clapham Omnibus', and an L class Leyland Olympian:
Episode 2: Hearts of Stone
More MCW Metrobuses:
Episode 4: Turnaround

Another L class Leyland Olympian with a Dennis Dart/Plaxton following:
A Routemaster route branded for route 159:
A reflected Olympian on route 220:
