    It defo was originally shown on a Monday night, but it could've been moved later to a Sunday... I agree though; it was one of the best TV series EVER!

    Marco.

    Loved The Professionals, although for me the stars of it now when I catch it on ITV4 occasionally is the cars - especially the Escort RS2000 - have you seen how much they go for now!

    Of course Hart to Hart and Battlestar Galactica, watched them too! The Life and Times of David Lloyd George, By The Sword Divided and Shogun were other things I remember watching. And A Woman of Substance. I imagine that last one was my mum's choice!
    North and South (The US civil war series that is) was a bit later, really liked that.

    That reminds me of Monkey - I had completely forgotten about that show, anyone else remember it? (“Haaaaah Pigsy” I seem to recall?)

    "Justice is sinking to the bottom of the sea, And it feels like I'm living in the wasteland of the free"

    It was the weakest practical joke since Cardinal Wolsey got his nob out at Hampton Court and stood at the end of the passage pretending to be a door!
