ITV's poor man's version of "Black Rain"
27 August 1999 | by (Luton, England) – See all my reviews

Yellowthread Street is one of those poor man's attempt to bring the British version of "Black Rain" onto our TV screens..

Well basically it's all about these cops solving crimes in and around Hong Kong's mean streets..

It was worth the effort but I think the reason the ITV chiefs axed it because it wasn't really entertaining enough to say that it will make another series..

I remember the series quite well especially most of the stars..

Well, I don't know if Yellowthread Street will make it back to our screen as one those "classics". If it does, I'd probably see it again..
