I remember it too - Brilliant
26 June 2006 | by (Leeds, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I too remember it like it was yesterday. I've searched and searched for anyone else that remembers it. At last, i've found recognition of what has haunted me ever since. Maybe I too hold this show with too high regard having not seen it since what must be the mid 80's. Since reading your post i went on German ebay and found some box-sets knocking about. I am yet to find out if they have different audio or subtitles. But if they do, rest assured i will do my up-most to a get that DVD into my collection.

Long live Timm Thaler.

Bring it back,

Thanks so much Jamie
