    Yes it was good viewing for many years, normally on a Sunday night.

    It went downhill when most of the original cast had left & it was re-tooled to be more soap like.

    I've also spotted it on Drama.

    I watched a few episodes in the afternoon on drama but I wasn't to keen when the oldies left to be replaced by new

    It was on Sunday evenings, usually with school in the morning and all that - I often think of it as Casualty or The Bill with the London Fire Brigade instead of the ambulance service or the police. I watched it while waiting for Spitting Image or Hale and Pace to come on.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    I was thinking about those nicknames of Sicknote and Bayleaf (or was it Bailiff?), and thought whether anyone in the fire service (or any other public service for that matter) had crew with ironic nicknames?

    I suppose that it was Fireman Sam for adults...

    Bayleaf was because he liked cooking I think.

    I remember Charisma (would-be ladies man) and Zorba (of Greek origin).

    There was an episode which featured a school setting a fire alarm off and, I think, was a false alarm and the school getting a good rollicking as a result. Another one was some plants hung up over a television set, and we are seen that water and electricity don't mix after the plants were watered. Anyone remember those episodes?

    Managed to get a signed photograph of actress Zoe Heyes (I cannot think of anything else that she had appeared in), who had played a female firefighter in the 1997 series - I believe that she was a homage to the first female firefighter who killed on duty not long before she joined the series.
