“It might be a cliche, but why don't they make them like this anymore (I'm only 35 before you start thinking otherwise!)? Great acting, nice scripts and characters you can get involved with. Why the beeb haven't released the other series is beyond me (oh no, silly me, it won't make them much profit), I could do with a bit of robbie to combat the latest banal celebrity cooking/dancing/goat herding (don't laugh, they'll make it) dross that classes itself as entertainment. So !) come on beeb, more robbie. Oh, and another few series of grange hill with zammo, roland, gripper et al would go down well too.”

“What a joy to see this again after 22 years since it was first broadcast. The stories still hold strong today unlike many 80's dramas which have dated.A strong cast featuring many actors who have since gone onto many other things.Look forward to Series 2 and 3 being released and seeing how this ended as I can't remember.”

“This series is apsolutly brilliant.Ray brooks is such a natural actor and the supporting cast just make it the series of the 80s.I just wish they would bring out season 2 on dvd.”
