Why is this never repeated?
30 December 2002 | by jo_latham2kSee all my reviews

I saw this programme for the first time last year when a friend in the US kindly sent me a copy of the whole series. Now I'd like to tape my own (the quality of the copy is not wonderful) but as far as I'm aware, this show never gets shown in the UK. Why??? It's great! I love it! Maybe it's because I love the cast, or the storylines, or the area it's set in, or maybe all three, but I adore this programme! I don't know why it didn't last for more than 22 episodes, it deserved much better.
