I was lucky enough to see this series on TV in the seventies and have long awaited its arrival on DVD. As I now live in Germany I've now even got my German girlfriend hooked on the characters and Geordie accent! Series 2 firmly establishes Jack Ford on the ladder out of the gutter. There are some excellent episodes which see our hero effortlessly bridging the social gulf between cobbled street, tree-lined avenue and country estate. The central character of Jack Ford is masterfully played by James Bolam in surely his finest role. The support cast are also excellent as is the writing which superbly captures the feel of the era. I shall purchase the whole series and enjoy these stories again and again over many years. This kind of quality never ages.

This series was outstanding. The acting was top class and you could not wait to see the next episode. My wife and I stayed up much later than we should have with work the next morning as a result!

As we come from the north-east we of course related to the accents and cultural aspects of the series. However, these were issues of the time and a story woven in between. It was very well written and although now 35 years old it was still as credible today as it was then due to its quality.
