Should be brought back
6 December 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I was very disappointed with the TV version. A Horseman Riding By is my favourite book/s. No Icky Palfrey in the first series, and I thought that was one of the lynch pin characters in the book. No Uncle Franz? I liked Nigel in the part, but felt him a bit wooden at first and I was quite disappointed in the presentation of what is to me a very classic series of books. It's out on DVD, but I felt the casting was very good bar the exclusion of Icky. Why did they decide to do that? Maybe the direction was at fault? But it should be a much longer series, and end after vol.3.

Maybe they will bring it back one day.
