I was so pleased when the second series of this show finally became available to purchase on DVD, I was beginning to wonder if it would ever happen considering it was four years since the first season was released.
I have very fond memories of watching this when it was shown on late night televison (ITV) in the late eighties(?!), and still remember sitting up in bed, in the dark (with the volume turned down as not to wake the rest of the family!).
I loved the theme tune, to this very day I consider it one of the greatest ever from a television show; I thought that Edward Woodward (a name once described by Sir John Gielgud as sounding like a fart in the bath), and the idea of this well dressed slightly older man being able to kick ass was so cool.
I loved the idea of him having a fascinating past, and found the gritty realism so different. I also remember loving the synth music from throughout the show, and looking back now it is very much representative of the eighties.
The show still very much holds up to todays scrutiny; the image and sound quality on this second series appears to be better than that of the first series (even though I was willing to forgive that to finally possess the series!).
One again nicely packaged, with a well produced booklet; although it is not necessarily quite as cheap as I would like I do feel it is worth it, firstly for the memories, secondly for the quality, and thirdly you are getting nearly seventeen hours of entertainment. The third series is due to be released on the 31st December 2012, hopefully the fourth and final series will be available not too long after that!
