Needs a DVD release
16 August 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Thirty nine years after seeing this series I still remember it as a gripping and unmissable piece of television. It was an absolute must-see and our whole family watched every episode, which was exceptional. I suspect that it would seem rather dated now but I can recall that at the time The Gold Robbers was a very well-made series. In this day and age, when the standard of TV drama has plummeted and fails to innovate, a release of this series on DVD would provide the original audience with a satisfying reminder of a classic series, and could show today's programme makers how it should be done. I just hope that the tapes are still in the archive somewhere; I don't remember it being repeated after its initial airing.
