The series suffered the loss of its leading actor when Maurice Colbourne, who played Tom Howard, died of a heart attack in 1989. Episodes of series five were hurriedly rewritten to explain the character's absence before finally killing him off at the beginning of the sixth and final series. See more »
I totally disagree what this person has written as I think Howard's Way was brilliant! It had great acting, great storylines and a brilliant theme tune. It should have ran much longer in my opinion. It was the BBC's version of "Dallas" and "Dynasty" and I think they did a great job!
