Trivia

Nigel Havers decided to leave the show in 1999. He had taken center stage after original Dangerfield actor Nigel le Vaillant quit a couple of years earlier, in 1997. The BBC decided to pull the plug on the entire series after Havers' departure, feeling that no-one would accept the show having its main character changed for a second time, especially after such a short time.

Danger, danger, high...(ly boring after first two series!)
27 February 2007 | by gaiter88See all my reviews

Ah Dangerfield. That name takes me back. Before I even start it is worth pointing out that this program should really be considered as two. There are the first two series and then the rest of it. The rest of it is nothing special. I watched little of the later series and recall even less. If every there was an advert for quitting whilst you're ahead or trying to keep you're assembled cast together Dangerfield is it. The cast changed, the car changed, the quality changed, hell in the end even the lead changed, Dangerfield without a Dangerfield?

But, and it's a big but, there were the first two series. These were a totally different kettle of fish. Maybe it is nostalgia clouding my memory but I can't help remembering them fondly. A good cast and enthralling stories, all set against (what seemed to me as) the ever golden Warwickshire countryside in summer, it's enough to make you want to become a GP.

Essentially three things spring to mind when I think of the name Dangerfield. The first is fond memories of summers in my youth (I was born and bred not far form Dangerfield country) and the second is a question, why didn't the BBC persist in dragging it out for so long? (I know money and ratings). Finally there is the third, Nigel Hess' theme music which, for better or worse, will stay with me always.
