CONVOLUTED MURKY-DEPTHS shooting and shagging melodrama set in the pressure cooker multi-racial atmosphere of Britain’s Second City (that’s Birmingham, by the way, not Norwich). MAURICE “HOWARD’S WAY” COLBOURNE led a small-star cast of several (ELIZABETH CASSIDY, SAEED JAFFREY, ROBERT LEE) as the bodies piled up and the plot drifted away. Came back for a contractual obligation second series but the game was up by the end of the first run. Additional laffs accrued from the irrelevant stand-up comedy snippet at the beginning of each episode.

    The second series may have been contractual obligation, but Philip Martin used that obligation to create a whole new show that acted as a commentary on the first one.

    Troma made a film, Grindsploitation with a John CLyne in the lead. Coincidence?
