It was a highly entertaining show, with excellent characterisation. Very well written and kept the viewer in suspense throughout. The setting, in the Solent was fantastic, and the scenery in much of the filming was stunning. The "at sea" footage was especially good. It had all the right story lines, and a good number of "baddies" to boot. The show should have run longer and it could have been made into a lasting "soap" in the form of Eastenders, but with much better scenery. It was a shame that the main character, played by Maurice Colbourne, died so early in the series, but the scriptwriters recovered it well. My favourite character was Jack Rolfe. The biggest disappointment I have had is that it isn't available on DVD or video. We can get Dallas on DVD now, so why not Howards' Way ? Does anyone agree with me on this ?
