Civvies! Best TV show in years!
10 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I sat up once a week every week to watch this show with my brother. We were addicted to it. My brother was only 15 at the time and he was so enamoured with the programme he decided to join the army and become a para. This he did and thoroughly enjoyed himself! We used to be allowed to sit in the front room and watch each episode in peace without the other siblings annoying us! We were never sure where the story was going but we guessed that at some point there was going to be a bit of double crossing and that Frank would get stitched up. My brother missed the final episode as he was out but he made me tape it for him and then guarded the video with his life until he could watch it. Maybe it was our age and we were young and impressionable but i can honestly say that I haven't enjoyed a BBC serial as much as this one and I do not understand why the BBC have never released it on VHS or DVD ( or repeated it )!
