Fantastic series - how to get hold of it again?
2 June 2006 | by (Belfast, Northern Ireland) – See all my reviews

This was an amazing series, one of my favourites. At the time of course I didn't have the wit to record it - I came across it by accident in the first place, and didn't record it from the outset, so there seemed no point after that. Now I am dying to see it again.

To be honest, I don't remember all that much about the dialogue or specifics of the plot - I just remember thinking it a brilliant series. Thus, I'd love to see it once more.

So, can anyone help the previous poster and myself? I've looked at all the major online DVD retailers, and none of them appear to stock a DVD of this series. I can only assume that it hasn't been released, but if anyone knows differently, please tell all!
