Classic Television
Boon was an excellent series. Former firemen Ken Boon (Michael Elphick) and Harry Crawford (David Daker) run a security and a private investigator company, assisted by their staff led by Rocky (Neil Morrissey) and Laura (Elizabeth Carling), later replaced by Alex (Saskia Wickham). All three could consider 'Boon' to be their big break on the road to stardom. The series was really enjoyable, and the cast superbly talented. The late Michael Elphick took the lead role and was tremendous, winning an army of fans for himself, respecting his great acting ability. I'll just always regret being about a week away from writing him fan mail to praise him and thank him for the entertainment he'd provided in his career thus far, at the time he tragically died aged 55. With Daker, they played the best of friends, which helped make the drama and close shaves involved in the episodes all the more compelling. This was an example of a great show; entertaining, humourous at times, well-written and with an excellent cast.
