Storyline

Tom Howard is made redundant from his job as a senior aircraft designer and decides to invest his skill, time and redundancy money in a run-down local boat building yard. Without his investment the yard would certainly have gone bust but the decision puts a great strain on his marriage and causes problems with other members of his family. The various family members gradually come to terms with their changing circumstances and the consequences of Howard's decision. Written by Mark Smith <msmith@osi.co.uk>

Excellent!!
9 July 2002 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

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!
