FFS! Could that trailer be any more crass and irritating?

I envy anyone coming to the series fresh. It's quite simply superb.

No more weird than an animated Adam Adamant or Dad's Army.

Any opportunity for more Callan has got be be a good thing, surely?

Has anyone tried the short story collections I mentioned upthread? I also need to try tracking down the novels at a reasonable price.

Having rewatched the entire series (well, the b&w ones that exist anyway) over a fortnight, I'd can't recommend it highly enough.
