Over twenty years in the waiting, but this will be well worth the long waiting time endured by Twin Peaks buffs!

David Lynch has personally, and time consumingly, overseen this release. That automatically, in my book anyway, makes it a winner from the off.

The cast list alone should give a clue as to the quality on screen, with Anna Friel, Bob Hoskins and UK prime time pulls such as Jonas Armstrong taking up central roles as each episode focusses on "their" character within the eponymous street.

Exactly the same format as the previous series, each one hour episode surrounds one individual house/character within the street.

This is series drama and not kitchen sink/throwaway stuff that usually populates the screens all too often. Not for the faint hearted, the subject matters includes… Read more
