Goodbye Brookside
31 October 2003 | by rossrobinsonSee all my reviews

Well Brookside has had it's 21 years on Channel 4 and sadly it had to end because of the less viewers they had with it. Who knows, it could be on the sky channels showing old episodes. It's last ever episode will hire on 4th November 2003. So that brings it to the end for good. I'm sure there will be a few more viewers paying their last respects to Brookside. Well Goodbye then Brookside

RIP: 16th October 1982 - 4th November 2003
