I HAVE THIS!!!
26 January 2004 | by (Herne Bay) – See all my reviews

I recently managed to get hold of this on vhs from it's original taping. It's easily as good as I remember it. Brilliant writing and direction, a joy to watch and shows why UK TV used to be the envy of the world. Sadly like everywhere else we're just subjected to endless "reality" shows these days!
