Yesterday are showing re-runs of Tenko every day at 4 and 7pm. Have seen every episode before but am still watching. One of the best shows ever on tv imo.
My favourite character is Dorothy. Any other fans out there?.

I loved this series- used to stay up late with my mum to watch it on Thursday nights back in the 80s.

Didn't they do a reunion one set some years later? shown one Christmas I recall.

Another one who sat with her Mum watching it first time round :D

oh i was waiting for it to be repeated as i wanted to watch it from the beginning (ie the bit where they are all wealthy civil servants and how they come to be imprisoned). i was quite young when it was first on but my mum let me watch it with her. Brilliant series.

I loved this in the 80s and saw the reunion on TV. i remember crying buckets at the surrender / harri carri / stone throwing bit....

...is 'yesterday' a sky channel? As i don't have that at the mo...

I loved the nurse and the posh old lady and the 'fucking hell they've sent us to Raffles ending' - <sighs>

I loved it. I used to stay up really late with my mum to watch.

Thanks for the info, I used to watch it too and then started on the books.

I sat watching it with my mum when I was on mat leave a couple of years ago. She loved it and I loved watching it with her.

'Twas excellent indeed. I have seen a couple of episodes on yesterday, but often miss it sad. Presumably it will be shown again, again iyswim.

Another fan here. I also remember watching this with my mother. Loved the series. Always felt sorry for the one who got pregnant by one of the guards but was then treated like a slapper. Also used to like MASH and am keeping an eye on the series on Amazon and hoping it gets under £40 (might have a long wait!)
