It's the 'headquarters' of the T Dan Smith character.
As if James Bond is a Geordie gangster with more penis than sense.
I know Chris Ecclestone was in it but for some reason I've got it in my head Daniel Craig was too, he wasn't was he?
Was the closing scene a character on a bridge whilst Don't Look Back in Anger played?
Starring Christopher Eccleston
was a great series.
Anyone remember Civvies?
I'd possibly order it, but all that Oasis would probably piss me off too much.
Don't remember Civvies no.
the closing scene certainly was.
I don't remember a great deal about Civvies apart it being about a load of soldiers who came home and then had to get on with their lives. It was on at a similar time to Our Friends in the North.
no Oasis in the charts, than Our Friends appeared on telly, and suddenly Oasis were everywhere. So we've got the series to thank for their fame, perhaps.
It's £109 on Amazon. Shame.
Did Civvies have Robson Green in it?
I think I'll get the boxset next time I get paid.
You're thinking of Soldier Soldier. I think.
and we have the abortion to blame for their singing careers.
I think Oasis were in the charts before Our Friends was aired, hence Don't Look Back in Anger being in the closing scene.
I *think* that when the last episode aired, DLBIA went to number 1 the same day. So there's a big nostalgia trip for peoples like moi, who were only seven or eight at the time.
The song has been used in a multiple television programmes since its original release — perhaps most notably, it played over the end credits of the final episode of the BBC Two drama serial Our Friends in the North in March 1996, the very week it was at the top of the UK charts.
at my prime
Seemed like everyone in my family was pissed up almost constantly from about spring of 94 until summer of 97.
I thought just the title alone would be enough to register a little pre-cum into your trackies
It goes all the way through the history of Britain from the sixties to the nineties. It's banging, mon.
I'm halfway through the first episode (I took a break to watch Shawshank).
who the fuck thinks the 'proper north' is the north-west? :/
i think i should take that as a sign of my feelings towards it.
