Burnside... was made for the Bill
11 February 2006 | by ed-627See all my reviews

I agree, this series was a disappointment. Chris should stick at what we know him best for.

An attempt to capitalize on Burnside without Burnside... I mean who could have thought of that, an undoubtedly popular character that if returning today (13 years later) would be much like Hilda returning to Corry.

Burnside needs to get back into "The Bill", after all, he MADE the show.

After he left it sadly went downhill, not surprising given the strength of his character and charisma (can't believe I said that).

Was it really 1993?
