I enjoyed it. In fact, it was better than I remember. In my memory, it was annoyingly PC, and Jean Darblay was this kind of superwoman who was there to prove that she could be just as good as any man, but the first episode showed her to be a bit more human (she gets a dressing down from her superior and then goes and takes it out on one of her subordinates), and she had a chip on her shoulder the size of Derbyshire. The production quality was also a little bit better than I remembered. There were a lot more external shots than those horrible shot-in-the-studio-directly-onto-videotape scenes. There is a tiny note on the box that some parts have been edited for contractual reasons, but I haven't noticed it yet. I suppose there were probably a few pop tunes playing in the background which they had to replace.
And the price is great too - if you watch one episode every Saturday night (in a foolish attempt to recreate your youth), you get four months' worth for 22.49.
So why only four stars? This DVD loses one star for making me feel old. I keep looking at characters and thinking, "that teenage lass must be in her forties by now. Good Lord, she was the same age as me!"
Still, I'm looking forward to the next series. As that one should have two less episodes than this one, maybe they can dig up some old interviews with cast members or other documentary material about the show to put on disc 4.
