Re: Shows ruined by revival/comeback

Yes, the nostalgia angle in "Whatever" was a very attractive and relatable idea, the social changes that happened while Terry was away, and the threat he poses to the settled Bob, tempting him back to the old ways. One of my favourite scenes is in "Moving On", Bob driving Terry around and pointing ...

Re: Talking Pictures TV - New Channel from Renown

I find the British B movies from the late 50s to early 60s quite fascinating, both for spotting faces of young actors who went on to much better things and for sights and sounds of a Britain I remember from my early childhood that are now long gone.

Re: Charlie Drake, that bookcase incident.

I can remember watching the incident live aged around 7 or 8. I think they just rolled the credits once it was apparent he was knocked out with no further explanation. It was not until the following day that the newspapers had the story of how seriously hurt he was. I also liked the The Worker which...

Re: PR: It's Dark Outside [Network]

Thanks for the extra inforamtion. So the episode where Claire Martin dies was not the final one of the series it would appear. However, I can confirm a very vivid memory of the end of the episode where she has committed suicide as the camera pulls back from her with the Jackie Trent record playing a...

Re: PR: It's Dark Outside [Network]

I can remember watching Series 2 when I was about 10 years old. I remember it being very interesting ,and at times quite confusing. My main memory is the record by Jackie Trent that seemed to get played most weeks and a tragic end to the series. I think that one of the main characters dies in the fi...
