All 15 episodes from the seventh series of the popular fire-fighting television drama, following the men of Blackwall Fire Station's Blue Watch as they put their lives on the line combating the public's seemingly endless dangerous behaviour. In this series, traffic accidents and tower block infernos counterpoint the more personal stories of the firefighters.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Pretending to be Firefighters" 29 Jan 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The key to this 7th (1994) series of arguably British TV's premier drama is that there's not much in the way of fires.

This could be described as "Pretending to be a firefighter? That's fraud, innit?" or maybe Sub-officer John Hallam can summarise the action in an average episode: "Do you know what I've done today? I've been slagged off by a lorry driver, stuck in a lift and trapped in a blinking traffic jam!"

There's gripping stuff here too with great dramatic performances by Andrew Kazamia (Station Officer Nick Georgiadis) and Sara Powell (Firefighter Sally Reid) but the tone is set by Gerard Horan (Charisma) and Blue Watch's Mr. Toad, Richard Walsh (Sicknote) who discovers golf on his "second honeymoon" with wife Jean (Amanda Dickinson - glamorous as well as being as sharp as a knife drawer in this series). Sicknote also adopts a mangy dog ("the ugliest being in Creation"), tries hair restorer delivered in a brown envelope from Sweden and starts wearing a wig.

There aren't enough shouts for 5 stars, but the few fires there are include very realistic and tense ones on the Woolwich Ferry, in a public library, in a converted flat and one of LB's greatest-ever incidents, the fire in the propane yard with gas cylinders flying in all directions across a normal estate.

Too many of the characters are fed up with their lot to make this a classic series. The series could be summed up by a wife throwing kitchen items at her husband and him rolling his eyes resignedly.

Without any fires.

No subtitles, no extras, but 15 episodes on four discs. Fans will love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Hot Stuff 19 April 2008
Format:DVD
I really enjoyed series seven, great to see Nick and Ariadne finally get together even if for a short spell. I miss colin in this series and Posion Pearce's wife is even more full of poison than him. What a cow!
Glad Sandra Hallam took her to task. Great series and the actors are all terrific.

i recommend this series to anyone who has not got it yet
