I loved this as a child. I remember watching it on Saturday nights when my mum had gone out. It was the highpoint of my evening.

I am rewatching it now. It has lost nothing in the intervening years. I LOVE the strong female character lead.

Funny thing is that my tastes clearly haven't changed at all 45 years.

I enjoyed watching this too, used to push the toddlers to bed so that I could have a sit down.

GagaJo, where would I find that? I loved it too, and remember looking for it a while ago, with no luck.
Another favourite was The Brothers. I think I found one episode on Britbox, but nowhere else.

If they re-made it now, I be it would be as raunchy as "Harlots"!

I am watching it on a website called Bflix.to. It is a GREAT site. Free and no adverts at all. I watched Finding Alice last week on it.

GagaJo Thanks for that. I'm going to watch Duchess of Duke street. A very good site!

I remember this, loved it!

GagaJo Sat 23-Jan-21 19:55:23

I am loving it. Currently on episode 5.

Thank you for the link, Gagajo. Just started watching Episode One and recognised June Brown playing the part of her mother!

GagaJo Sat 23-Jan-21 20:35:47

Yes! And I have recognised the actress playing Louisa as the mother in law in Finding Alice.

Brilliant GagaJo! Thank you very much for this!
I’ve just tuned in.
So easy because of your link - very kind.
I didn’t realise the first episode was September 1976!

That’s me hooked for hours now.
GN will be getting less of a look in the next few days!

I’d never even heard of the server.
Thanks again.
😊

I’m such a happy bunny watching this!
When the french chef comes in to taste the creme caramel she’s just made it reminded me of ‘Masterchef’! 1976 style.
😂

Ps. I’ll soon catch you up GagaJo you’ve got to teach and I’m retired ...

I love both Duchess of Duke Street and When the Boat Comes In. We have the box sets and watch them fairly regularly.

Thank you! I tried using that link on ipad, but it told me I’d have to update Flash player, which you can’t do on Apple ( in fact, I don’t think you can do it anywhere now) So, I went in to Bflix via Google, and it’s working fine.
So, no work getting done today!

Lucca Sun 24-Jan-21 07:15:25

Ah I’m having trouble too so I’ll try google

Lucca Sun 24-Jan-21 07:18:24

No joy just gets stuck

shysal Sun 24-Jan-21 07:45:48

It worked for me so I have started watching it already this morning!
Thanks for the link.

Done all that aNd registered but it won’t play !

GagaJo Sun 24-Jan-21 09:27:00

That's strange Lucca. I have a really old iPad and it plays ok.

I haven't registered, I just used the site without. Do you have any other kind of device.

Duchess of Duke Street and When the Boat Comes In are both on YouTube. Along with a lot of other old favourites.

No! I don’t understand I’ll try again but it just freezes.

GagaJo Sun 24-Jan-21 10:26:54

It might be the strength of your wifi signal. I use the school one and if too many of the little blighters are on their devices, the video freezes for me then.
