Not bad, but I preferred The Avengers - mainly the Emma Peel era.

In recent years I have become more interested and enjoy watching what is labeled "Period Drama", adaptations of books by novellists such as Jane Austen & Catherine Cookson.

In the past a couple of my favourites were
The Onedin Line & The House Of Eliott

Currently enjoying "survivors" and also enjoyed the last remake of "day of the triffids".

Bet you remember the originals of both though Wink

I remember bits of Survivors, but I was only 7 when it started and I remember my mum hating us watching it.

Quote:remake

I tend to think the these are never as good as the original.

In case anyone missed it earlier...

I am trying to remember the name of a TV series probably from the early 1970s about a bunch of bank robbers who move in with a family - can't remember if it's a guest house or what. They end up holding them hostage. Was a series. Anyone? It's driving me mad and google is being no help at all.

I'm surprised nobody's mentioned 'Edge of Darkness', yet. And I mean the original, not the Hollywood travesty.

And no mention of Dennis Potter? What about 'The Singing Detective'? Or 'Pennies from Heaven'?

I only watch sport and comedy. And Doctor Who (does that count as drama?).
