Loved this show - would love to get the DVD
25 December 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I loved this show and I missed the first episode. The series develops beautifully and the characters are great. I especially liked the 'Cabbie'. It was shown in Australia a few years ago and we have not seen it since. Definitely worth a repeat viewing. The protagonist is quite easy to empathise with, even though he is less than effective. His sister's attitude to situations plays well against her brother. The father/son relationship of the gangsters is fantastic to watch and similar to everyday relationships. The apparent logic of strange situations is hard to argue with and the fact that William and Susan start to behave in line with the gangsters is very well done. Any one know where the DVD is for this one? I would love to have a copy.
