Just finished watching the entire series, the quality throughout of both the writing and acting is superb, the story af a coal town neighbourhood in the north with Jack ford played by James Bolam as the pivotal character is drama at its best,the supporting characters are no less well played by actors who all came from the north, the feel of the series is all the better for it, and these characters are often the main focus of episodes, so the story is not all centred around Ford in every episode, this was so good i watched it two and sometimes three episodes at a time worth every penny and then some .

 when the boat comes in is a brill account of lifeon tyneside

Which i watched over 30 years ago brill storey lines and full of excerlent british actors who you are still watching today in tv programs and hollywood films eg lord of the rings, new tricks its a must. Of course as a born and bred geordie i rate the actors (mostly geordies) as brilliant
