I think one of my favourite episodes was the one were Nathan's girlfriend was killed and he was framed for her murder

And the other one had to be the 'Marsian' episode.

They were nice tight plots I think

I agree, both of those were excellent, but then there wasn't really a bad one at all. There are wonderful character scenes throughout and Boucher's dialogue sparkles.

Have you ever considered making a model of "Box" or what ever the little gizmo was called

I've tried for ages to get the series on DVD - but not only is it rare, but so blooming expensive to buy

I couldnt stand the themetune to start with, but as the series continued I really stated to like it

So were did you obtain the costumes from Kev, bet they were expensive - more expensive than the B7 costumes .

I just looked on Amazon for the series - believe me when I say my copies did not cost me 150!!!! (faint) I think it was only 30 when it first came out.

I've even checked on German Amazon - they often have stuff we can't get here and they nearly always have the UK sound track aswell as the German sound track - but nothing!!!

I've often been tempted to make 'Box', I'm still looking for the right component case that he was made from, they seem to be out of production now.

I got the DVD's when they came out, so they weren't too costly.

I got both of my costumes from ebay! They weren't too expensive, it's not as popular a series as B7, but then, some of those costumes I did get cheap (wasn't it 10 or 20 for Carnell's uniform, I can't remember now?). My Avon costumes weren't all that expensive when you look back.

Look whats on ebay at the moment

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/STAR-COPS-DOUBLE-LIFE-3-EPISODES-BBC-VIDEO-/300563838809?pt=UK_DVD_Film_TV_Videos&hash=item45fb003759

Only VHS though - might put a bid in myself. 3 episodes are better than none

I still have the VHS tapes, I collect what little 'Star Cops' memorabilia there is. 3 50min episodes per tape, that's good value!

I suspect it isn't repeated because there are so few episodes.

Well that's just not fair

Did you hear that there was to be a tenth episode but it was just cut completely?

The episode in question was called 'Death On The Moon', and was intended to be a kind of 'Cluedo' sort of thing. It was cancelled because of industrial action at the BBC.

That's right! I remember that now. Wasn't it supposed to be more about DAvid Theroux or involve him more, because he wasn't exactly in the 9th episode was he.

It may have been, I'm not sure. I think Theroux's absence from that episode was due to the actor being ill.
