Classic 90s chic
Chancer...I really wanted to be Stephen Crane (less keen on the whole Derek Love thing). Clive Owen was born to play this part, and all of the characters were so well defined the series had a lifelike/documentary feel that was addictive. the only weak character is Jamie (Pertwee) who I have never rated as an actor (famous parents can be an asset to the untalented). Veryy 80,s now, the filming is dated, but the imagery, storyline and haunting (jan Hammer) soundtrack are timeless. This DVD should be in every collection...and just now and then...it should be watched in its entirety, what a great day that would be. very British, very quality (and sexy) television! Spend 20 or 30 pounds and enjoy, no regrets anticipated.
