I'm sure that there's a few of you on here that remember the original 1984 series with Bob Peck (who sadly passed away in 1999) - anyway I noticed that they are remaking it in Hollywood with (at the moment) Mel Gibson.

I watched it recently after many years and was amazed at how good it still was - a really quality BBC nuclear thriller - harrowing and intense. I loved the Bob Peck and CIA 'Darius Jedburgh' character (played by Joe Don Baker) and only hope that any remake does the series justice - I believe the director is the same so hopefully he will ensure the remake does justice to the original.

lol I've never heard of it. When I clicked on this link "The Edge of DARKNESS" I was expecting to read about some suicidal balded bozo on the brink of despair, longing for his locks...damn! had a pay pal account all set up for therapeutic sessions as well...sighs...such is life.

I'll check it out if it ever releases (again) though.

NG2GB - LOL, I never thought of that - balding bozo goes suicidal... They'd probably have called it 'Hedge of Darkness'.

Bigmac - it was pre-Rab by many years 'by the way...' :)

Excellent NGTGB you've a great sense of humour...

Janna - my boss gave me the dvd for Christmas and I'd forgotten how powerful it was- probably one of the best dramas the BBC has EVER produced and that's saying something - I hope that the remake does the original justice. If so you'll never hear the word 'Northmoor' and not have a chill run down your spine...
