| Possibly the best UK drama of the eighties!
A ten out of ten score may seem a bit high, but I simply couldn't give it anything below.

PROSPECTS was absolutely brilliant, from the spot on chemistry and casting of the two main protagonists, to the stereotypical but entertaining villains "Stretch" and "Tubbsy".

I was GUTTED that this series got cancelled after one classic series. The stories were great, the acting was superb and more than anything... THE THEME SONG!!!

How brilliant a theme. If you never heard it go and hunt it down.

"Is it just another day? Or will Prospects find a way? On the crumbling city streets, Working for tomorrow"

Or something like that.

I loved this show so much, that I ran into the criminally unsung Brian Bovell at a cinema in London and held him up (with his girlfriend), while I sung him the whole theme song. I'm sure he hasn't forgotten it and believe me... neither will I.

I loved Prospects and I sincerely hope it gets a DVD release.
