5.0 out of 5 stars A .Great 70s series, 5 Mar. 2012

This review is from: Luke's Kingdom - The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
I 'm happy to see this series re-released at last even if it meant buying a multi-player in The States All as good as I remember from 40 years ago. Almost.
Oliver Tobias in Luke's Kingdom was something to moon over with embellishments whilst waiting to fall asleep when i was a girl .He's as seriously sexy as Oliver Reed in " Women in Love" ; same looks. A brand of dark irresistible barstard a girl could be forced to have sex with and end up quite enjoying if that's not too dangerous to even mention.
In its own way Luke's Kingdom includes a fairly realistic cinematic rendition of wild west Australia . The Australian scenery gives grand scope to the film and there are real aborigines in one of the series although Black Velvet is clearly a white woman in black paint. Luke's increasing ruthlessness and brand of dashingness drives the series. There is usually something comical about the ruffian characters
Seeing things from America particularly- the British do make great drama series. Prime Suspect Upstairs Downstairs and going back further the unforgettable I Claudius . Unlike these , Luke's Kingdom is unmistakably made for T.V , so nothing too involved, although it revives itself with engrossing scenarios .The volume needed to be raised because the sound quality is a little muffeled . Otherwise this series is surprisingly not dated.
There used to be a scene where Luke pulls on his sister's pony tail and says that he will have her yet and saves her from being gang- banged.. This has been censored out. Not exactly the complete series then. What is it with the BBC to keep on being embarressed with the past.? Happens in other programmes re-issued on DVD. Not to mention their atrociously biased news reporting these days.
