Excellent series
16 January 2006 | by (norwich, uk) – See all my reviews

Robert Powell followed up his stirring performance as Hannay in the 70s version of '39 Steps' with this 80s TV series featuring the same character. Although studio bound the stories are efficiently performed and directed and make for a pleasing way to spend an hour. What lets them down are the rather dull scripts which, unfortunately are not based on Buchan's other Hannay stories. I have heard rumours of a new version of '39 Steps' and would be interested to see who is cast as Hannay. The only person who comes to my mind is Ralph Fiennes, but even he would have to pull out the stops to better Powell who is excellent in the role. this series is soon to be available on UK DVD and is well worth spending a few quid on.
