The show is particularly poorly-preserved in the archives: although the first season survives intact, there are very large gaps in the known holdings. Of the 191 editions, it is thought that only 56 are still known to exist; of these some installments no longer survive in their original format (e.g. there are only monochrome film prints of two color videotaped stories). Only seven of the later episodes exist in color. See more »
I don't think I will ever forget Janet's sweet voice as she answered the telephone, 'Arden Hoos". Not to mention the theme music. Great scripts and superb acting from the three main players.
I agree that for those of us with such fond memories of the original, the more recent remake was unwatchable. Much as I admire Ian Bannen, he could not compare with Andrew Cruikschank in the role of Dr. Cameron.
What is wrong with the BBC that, firstly, they didn't take care of the original tapes, and secondly, they don't allow us to see the rest by releasing them on DVD? Thank you, whoever suggested youtube--I'm on my way there now!
