Not bad but not really a series !
on 22 July 2015
I bought this box set some time ago (mainly because of some of the cast) and finally found time to watch it.I found it a bit strange that it is still chopped up into segments to make room for the non existing adverts but one can live with that.I found individual episodes quite well done but the whole thing does not really hang together as a series.The characterisation of the various figures wanders all over the place and often strains credibility.- perhaps there were too many different writers involved.To be fair this is probably more apparent from watching a box set than seeing the story unfold over months or years.It would be interesting to know why Ken Stott left the series-just a clash of offers or had he had enough of it?
Still interesting to see Caroline Catz in an early role and the dependable Sarah Parish who disappeared rather too soon from the story.
