a Bouquet of Barbed Wire ...

These days I have to be a bit picky with what I watch on TV.

Usually I will record something, or catch up later with it on Player, when I have time off work during the day.

No good trying to watch it in the evening, the TV in our place is dominated with constant channel hopping, between Sky Sports and the music channels!

At the moment my fix is the ITV remake of a Bouquet of Barbed Wire, and it takes something worth watching to get me to sit down for more than five minutes at a time!

I'm really enjoying this drama, and Trevor Eve like in everything else he does, is just brilliant. I'm liking Tom Riley too.

I just hope, as in so many other dramas, this one doesn't have a weak ending?

Edited to add - Oh my god Peter ends his life, free-falling from a hot-air balloon!

Like many a child of the seventies, I remember the original series only by name, and of course Susan Penhaligon was all the rage back then.

Don't you think Frank Finley looks pretty scary in this intro!

I've not watched this new series but I did watch the original with my Mum. We used to look forward to it. I think she had a bit of a thing for Frank Finley! x

Oooh Trevor Eve, I remember going to see him at The Mermaid Theatre in 1981 when he appeared in Children of a Lesser God ... can it really be THAT long ago?

That intro just screams 70's! I love some of those old programs. I love that you can get some of them on dvd now.

We moved past the MTV channels onto Tattoo programmes for my daughter and sy-fy for hubby, so still no choise for me!!!
