This was not quite as good as I remembered it. It deserved a second series though. I wonder if the cast wouldn't come back or if it was just cancelled?

I remembered The River as being fun and that I recalled I loved it when it appeared on the television, way back in the 80's, now, many years on, finally I have my own copy to treasure and watch over... Awesome it is as brilliant as I remembered it and of course, if one likes Mr Essex just a wee bit, then wow, he is just perfect, and gorgeous, and, and, and well I'm in love all over again!!! David Essex can act, has so many wonderful expressions and he makes you believe he is the lock keeper.. living the dream. The other members of the cast are excellent too, the timings as they all spar off each other are flawless, and it is witty and funny, and with reference to what was going on in that decade. If I had to be critical I would have preferred no back ground laughter, but then again, that was typical of the time it was broadcast..... It comes up fresh second, (third, fourth?,) time around, and as for a first time, well, for the romantic dreamer, I'd recommend it........ Ok! must go for a stroll down towpath now... ....again..!
