Wonderful series, long forgotten unfortunately..
15 April 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Leigh Lawson (the actor who should have been the Bond of the 80s) stars in this excellent drama set around the canals of Northern England. I remember watching this as a 14 year old and it had a profound effect on me! Though a troubled production, it was wonderfully shot with some excellent locations and a strangely chilling, yet compelling central storyline. Lawson portrays Lomax perfectly as a man betrayed by society and the system, who takes to the canals in search of the man that framed him. A menacing, yet poignant aura of loneliness always seems to haunt Lomax and the way the final series ended was perhaps the bleakest ever conclusion to any TV series I have ever seen. Probably had a lot to do with the excellent musical score that accompanied it! This so warrants a DVD release, or at the very minimum a repeat on Freeview..
