Greatest Series
I have just finished watching the complete series last night. I do concur that Series 4 was somewhat disappointing compared to the previous 3 which were supurb. Jack and Matt were simply fantastic and really showed how "maras" stuck together through thick and thin. The tight structure and lines within the casting made for intent listening as every line spoken had a hidden agenda. The harsh times, the Seatons, political loyalty seemed so relevant for the portrade times. Disappointed that not more of the original cast were involved in Series 4? But, this series was masterclass, sad that it is now over.

More please
This was great in the 70s and it ain't changed. James Bolam is a very underrated actor. I wonder if the cast could be persuaded to do an update, Jack could have just passed out in the last episode. Most of the cast are still about, Edward Wilson (Billiy) is the only one I think is gone, shame. Lets not forget the writer and creator James Mitchell, a real talent. Any chance you could repeat this again?

Great Series
I really enjoyed the whole series, I also could not watch it at 4 - so I recorded it and watched at night.I have to say I enjoyed the seventies episodes much more that the eighties. Who agrees? I also loved James Bolan iin the likley lads.

When the Boat Comes in
Wonderful in every respect. Missed it first time round - have been hooked this time. James Bolam deserves both Oscar and a Knighthood, and so well-supported by a wonderful cast. Not forgetting the realistic script and a slice of social history. It makes us grateful for being born with a Welfare state! D.Johnson 22.3.10
