I only caught this series comparatively recently on a satellite channel. I don't know if it was ever originally shown in the UK but I'd have been very young if it was, although it's surprising the number of series I do remember! It's a pretty much forgotten gem, like the equally almost forgotten "Johnny Ringo". The stories are entertaining and well done, with an interesting range of guest stars popping up. It stands up well against much longer lasting more familiar series of the time.
It was certainly worthy of a longer run. Well worth seeking out on the less popular, lower rated satellite/cable channels, the only ones this day & age likely to show anything like this.
