What happened
21 June 2006 | by rgstockerSee all my reviews

Does anyone know why this have never (AFAIK) been repeated recently. So much other rubbish on television - I thought the series was great and made much more interesting as I used to cycle around all the locations where the series was filmed. The Bramcott Arms pub is still there but now surrounded by newish social housing. Must go into the pub one day. Also lots of part of Southwark have now been regenerated but some bits still remain. Watching old Sweeny's has similar interest as you can see sections of London's history which are no longer there. I'm not old enough to remember bomb damaged London but I guess this is similar and a good view of what parts of London looked like in the mid 80's. I remember series one being repeated but not series 2 (which was not as good). Seems a shame not to repeat now the BBC has many more channels - perhaps even a DVD issue - does that make me really sad? Not sure.
