Brilliant TV drama, memories are coming back
10 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

As the other user commented on this, I too was a lad of eleven when I first saw this and I'm unashamed to say that I had a few nightmares at the time after having seen this, it's great to exercise a few of those demons, as i'm part way through re-watching it after all these years. The first and most vivid memory I have from this series was the music that opened it, really good opening music, which sets up this chilling but brilliant piece of drama. Even though its a few year old it still looks slickly produced, I have watched 2 episodes so still haven't got to see 'him' but I'm sure it wont be long. I have unfortunately seen the USA version which is poor in my opinion in comparison. Such a shame that this has not been commercially released, come on do us a favour please put on DVD. Enjoy
