This review is from: Shoestring - Series 1 [DVD]  (DVD)
This t.v series realy is a class act,Trevor Eve give's such a charasmatic performance as Eddie Shoestring,i do not think he has ever been better than he was in this.He has gone on to have a great career,but will alway's be remembered for this role.Such a shame they only made 2 series,at it's height the series drew in 18 million viewers eat your heart out X factor.A lot of fans don't realise Trevor Eve wanted to do a 3 series but wanted to take Eddie out of Bristol,and the sudden fame scared him plus the fear of typecasting.As i say the whole cast were good but it is Trevor Eve's performance that is so magnectic,his character is someone you realy root and care for.Did you know that Hollywood legend Gary Grant had the show send to him because he was born in Bristol where the series was filmed.For anyone who has not seen this series you realy must,it's a true classic,i only hope they bring out series 2,and one must not forget the brilliant theme tune by George Fenton,so go on and treat yourself to the best original bbc tec show this side of Christmas.
