Well, the wait is finally over, Amazon have sold out and the DVD is now in my hands via the High St store. It is just as brilliant as a I remembered it, so no rose tinted glasses. Fantastic performances, Glesga gallus humour and real locations (including one round the corner from where I grew up and across the road from the swimming baths I learned to swim in.)
I remember being gobsmacked when I heard Emma Thompson's real accent after the series as she did a very accurate West End Glasgow accent which I thought was authentic at the time the series was broadcast.
SO glad they sorted out all the copyright issues and the DVD can take it's place in the ranks of great ones.
I'm not going to spoil the story. For anybody new to it just go with it, for the ones who have seen it before enjoy!
