Outstanding series - what a loss!
I don't think I will ever forget Janet's sweet voice as she answered the telephone, 'Arden Hoos". Not to mention the theme music. Great scripts and superb acting from the three main players.
I agree that for those of us with such fond memories of the original, the more recent remake was unwatchable. Much as I admire Ian Bannen, he could not compare with Andrew Cruikschank in the role of Dr. Cameron.
What is wrong with the BBC that, firstly, they didn't take care of the original tapes, and secondly, they don't allow us to see the rest by releasing them on DVD? Thank you, whoever suggested youtube--I'm on my way there now!
