Brilliant series that I would love to see again
One of the great shows that lives on in the memories.
Based in Radio West, Trevor Eve plays Eddie Shoestring, a former cop who, in a plot line with which those familiar with the US series Midnight Caller will identify, proceeds to investigate the crimes off-the-air.
Whereas Midnight Caller worked better when the main character was confined to the studio, Shoestring works best when Shoestring is out and about.
Unfortunately, the absence any reruns or repeats, and the unavailability of a DVD version (apparently due to copyright and licensing problems) means that it will be virtually impossible to ever see this again, while we are subjected to endless repeats of much lesser shows.
A classic - would absolutely love if the BBC would rerun it.
