On a par with "The Bill"
13 June 2004 | by rsawersSee all my reviews

I have been watching this great show for five years and am so disappointed that it has been taken off air. In Australia we reached only to the end of 1993 so we missed a lot. How can TV stations leave regular viewers stranded like this. I would like to receive any copies that readers have recorded (shall pay). This is one of the best programmes to come out of Scotland. (I am of Scottish descent). The characterization is superb and the settings are so easy on the eyes. The plots often touch on many day to day subjects such as loneliness, happiness, the might of big business; marriage break ups; difficulties faced by small farmers; cot death etc all without foul language, overdone sexual references, murders etc. All ages are represented from the elderly, the lone unmarried, the middle ages to the young at heart and the plots deal with happenings relative to each age group and are skilfully intertwined. What a sad loss!! As I said in my letters to BBC and ABC, I hope all the evil spirits in Scottish castles come to haunt all those horrible, inconsiderate nobodies responsible for its demise.
