Trivia

Screenwriter Willy Russell had a major disagreement with the producers, mainly because he objected to the casting of David Morrissey and Spencer Leigh whom he thought looked too mature for the roles of 16 year olds Billy and Icky, and so he insisted that his name be removed from the credits. However, when the series was repeated in 1985, Russell's name was restored in the credits. See more »

A memorable coming of age drama
19 April 2002 | by caitlin_onlineSee all my reviews

This 5 part coming-of-age drama had a profound affect on me as a teenager. It was the first screen appearance of David Morrissey, who has since gone on to a fair level of screen success both in the UK and US. Also appearing as the troubled Icky was the brilliant Spencer Leigh, who unfortunately has not had the same success and appears to have appeared in very little since, and nothing in the last 10 years... I can still hum the haunting harmonica theme by Alan Parker.
