The character name George Stevenson is an in-joke: George Stephenson (1781-1848) was a 19th Century British railway engineer who designed a famous and historically important steam locomotive named Rocket. See more »
Absolutely fantastic, good entertainment. I don't think Robson Green can go wrong, everything I have seen him in from Soldier, Soldier onwards has been very good. If the rest of the series is as good as the first episode we are in for a treat. Well done actors, writers and production. Wonderful performances from the cast, dialogue is both witty and dramatic and the production costs show on the screen. Brilliant. I hope this series is the shape of things to come. British TV drama has been in the doldrums for some time. What a pleasure it is to have amusing, violence free entertainment for a change. And please lets have more programs with Robson Green in.
