Good Series Which Doesn't Stray too Far from the Book
This series was good as i have read the book i thought Wayne Goddard played a good Buddy Clark and Roger Daltrey was also very good in the same role which he reprised for the film version of the second book Buddy's Song where Wayne Goddard was sadly replaced with Chesney Hawkes who sadly failed to play the character as good as Goddard the series was in my opinion better than the film and it was actually this series which inspired the Buddy's Song book (notice the guitar in Buddys bedroom it gave author Nigel Hinton the idea for the sequel) overall although there are certainly better series out there this one does have some charms of its own some good writing on top of decent storytelling and acting make this mini series interesting and never dull for a second it was also refreshing because it was so close to the book recommended viewing
