Vastly underrated series!
20 May 2001 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Dangerfield was a classic series, one of the old school of TV series that relies on a strong story and cast rather than a crash bang wallop of special effects. As well as launching the careers of two of British TV's sexiest soap doctors (Namely Lisa Faulkner - Dr Vitoria Merrick - Holby City and Tamzin Malleson - Dr Kate Brady - A&E) Dangerfield brought us the life of a Police surgeon Paul Dangerfield. His wife had been killed in a car crash and he was struggling to cope with the task of dealing with two teenagers Marty & Al (played initially by Sean Maguire & Lisa Faulkner). Everyone could relate to someone in this and the first series saw Al's boyfriend die in a tragic hiking accident and Marty struggle to find himself - and a job!

At the end of series one both Maguire and Faulkner quit leaving the producers the unenviable task of finding replacements! Faulkner's raw sex appeal had made her a favourite with male audiences and most male teenagers had every reason to relate to Maguires inspired portrayal of the sensitive and intense Marty. The casting of Tamzin Malleson as Al was inspired, in a complete contrast to Faulkner, Malleson had the beauty of the classic English rose, and a totally different style, so the charactor changed out of all recognition coping with being a single mother trying to strike out on her own. Maguire proved more difficult to replace the producers turning to former BluePeter presenter Tim Vincent who though had the looks lacked Maguire's charismatic style and in comparison was perhaps a little wooden, but still managed to turn in a credible performance. Nigel Le Vaillant quit in 1997 leaving the show in the capable hands of Nigel Havers. His charactor didnt have the teenage children or the emotional problems of his predecessor making the show dependant on its Police storylines rather than its previously disfunctional family orientated plots! Havers did a great job, but something was missing - namely Al and Marty who for this viewer made the series so memorable.
