Re: Off Topic: Movie Tie-In Editions

Classic 1970s British cop show The Sweeney had tie-in novels based on the original concept rather than the actual show. The story goes that after the creator of the show and the man hired to produce it had creative differences, the creator walked. This meant the tie-in novels (which he supervised) were wildly different to what the series had done with the same characters and situation. Of course, they were published with photos of lead actor John Thaw on the front cover, even though the phrase "TV Tie-In" was a loose description at best...
