Tom Howard is made redundant from his job as a senior aircraft designer and decides to invest his skill, time and redundancy money in a run-down local boat building yard. Without his investment the yard would certainly have gone bust but the decision puts a great strain on his marriage and causes problems with other members of his family. The various family members gradually come to terms with their changing circumstances and the consequences of Howard's decision. Written by

The series suffered the tragic loss of its leading actor when Maurice Colbourne, who played Tom Howard, died of a heart attack in 1989 aged just 49. Episodes of the fifth series were hurriedly rewritten to explain the character's absence before finally killing him off at the beginning of the sixth and final series. See more »
I followed Howards Way from its original pilot, to its final show and I loved it. You must remember that when it was aired it was gripping stuff (and still is in my opinion), great scenery and fantastic music score, in my mind a classic series and one proud to stand there tall in the BBC library. For those interested, I have checked DVD online web stores, and the cheapest at present is with HMV where Season 1 and Season 2 retails for £15.99 each (as at 31.08.06), the link is here: http://tinyurl.com/oofue If this link fails to work, go to http://www.hmv.co.uk/ and search for Howards Way, this brings the total to about £32 for both the 1st and 2nd Season, I am a registered user of HMV and on checkout got a £5 discount. This in my mind, is great series, and one I love, and will enjoy watching again - to all those who have never seen it, its worth watching! brilliant stuff!!
