Just purchased the DVD...gosh, it brings it all back...
14 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

I watched this when I was younger, and it left a lasting impression on me. I always remembered the theme tune, which was rather catchy. I just purchased the newly released DVD, which I must say has dated somewhat. The sets look sparse, some of the acting, limited to say the least. But this for me, all adds to the magic of the show! I love it! Any ideas on how I can get the theme tune? Very funky. Recommend the DVD also, 12 episodes and quite good extras! My favourites were Paula Duncan and Gwen Plum, who went onto star in the VERY UNDERATTED Richmond Hill in 1988. It was just funny to see the stars looking younger and less experienced. Another favourite was Peita Toppano, who went onto play Karen Travvers in my Fav Prisoner: Cell Block H
