We finished watching the entire series, and enjoyed it to the end. Something we don't always manage. It is very much of it's time, so young viewers might find it odd! However, the girls are sympathetic characters and retain one's interest. Worth a view.

I remember the TV series x 2 in the 70's and the DVD's are great to watch and remember. Well worth it!

I loved this show when it was originally on the telly and never went out till I watched the latest episode. The songs are fab and in my opinion Julie Covington's version of " Don't cry for me Argentina " is streets ahead of all other versions. Great Show, great singing and music. A special piece of Telly History.

A real blast from the past ! It is 70's TV with really familiar actors at the start of their careers. These DVDs area commentary on the 70's fashion, life style and politics. The music is dated, but toe tapping. Just enjoy for the reminiscence value.

Been toying with the idea of purchasing this dvd for years but never got around to it. The sound was not great and required turning up to an extremely high level, but I am really glad that I finally took the plunge. Extremely enjoyable series.

A gift for my mother who watched it when it was originally screened on the TV. She loved it but unfortunately there were no subtitles available for her. She did view with very high volume though and thoroughly enjoyed.

Debuting in 1983 this show today is still as gripping as it was back then, standing out as a defining piece of television that was as ground-breaking as it was brilliant. The main leads are what make this instantly stand out above other crime dramas - four women - who are just as cunning, ruthless and dangerous (if not more so) than their male counterparts. Ann Mitchell's portrayal of Dolly Rawlins is mesmerising and so convincing at the crime she undertakes that you wonder why she bothered letting her husband do it in the first place.

She is supported by fellow widows Linda, Shirley and later, Bella. Together they pull off the ultimate crime and - unlike many dull moral lead US dramas - get away with it.

In 1985 they returned for more. This time the prize was diamonds, although the crime was never meant to be theirs and the consequences are devastating.

This is probably one of the finest British dramas ever produced and has stood the test of time, remaining a first class drama.

Just avoid the plot-hole ridden sequel series She's Out and the American comedy remake with Brooke Shields, they really do tarnish this fine piece of work.

I watched the series in the 80's and I have always hoped for a rerun but no such luck. So I bought an expensive DVD player just so I could watch them again and they are just as I remember - fantastic - great music and a great story. Now if you can just persuade them to release series 3 I could have that too.
