I really enjoyed this programme, I couldn't believe it when it suddenly vanished from our screens. The whole product, the acting, the story lines and the scripts - faultless. Well they won an award or two so it must be good - so hey, let's take it off, lest the public decide to reach for higher standards in programmes. One of the most appealing things about the series was the way that the 'minor' (and I realize that this may not be the correct term for them) cast members were drawn and as alive as the main characters, if not more so at times. Who could forget Hermann for example? I wish this programme was available on VHS or DVD, if anyone knows something I don't here, let me know! Thank you.
