They’re showing the old episodes on 5* and if you have Sky, you can get it through Other Channels! Go to Services and click Find/Add Channels. Then enter the following info:
You should see Channel 5, 5*, 5USA and Channel 5 + 1 etc. appear. Select them all and save and they’ll be in your Other Channels from now on.
Didn’t get to see all of the pilot myself, just the first half but was good for the old nostalgia! Alf & Ails’ and little Sally. Morag wasn’t in the pilot but she’s in tonight’s episodes from 1989 I believe.
They’re recycling a lot of names these days! So far this week we’ve seen original Casey (a girl not a boy), original Brodie (again, a girl not a boy) original Tiegan (not a River lover) and original Hayley (an artist not an addict). All these unusual names that you’d never meet someone called but yet I don’t think there’s ever been a John and Mary in it.
