Travelling Man was a midweek drama series from ITV.
Leigh Lawson was Lomax, an ex-drug-cop trying to clear his name after serving a two-year prison sentence for a bribe he never took while travelling Britain’s canals on a narrowboat.
He inevitably became involved in single-episode adventures along the way, such as the time while doing a bit of bar-tending work, he finds himself barricaded in with the owners as a local gang try to get in.
Early in the second series Lawson tracked down his lost son and reconciled things – leaving him to focus on finding the person who’d fitted him up on the corruption charges.
