This show can simply be described as a classic and possibly one of the best TV dramas of the late 1980s and 1990s. Up until its dramatic downfall around 1998 (Series 11) Londons Burning had millions glued to their screens. The combination of amazing special effects, gripping storylines and sheer quality made this show what it was. However the combination of killing off the main characters, poor storylines devoted to domestic problems and the lack of "real" fires led to a dramatic fall in ratings and eventually led to the show being axed in 2001.
If anyone has not seen the early series of this show they are certainly missing out on what was, and possibly still can be described as a TV masterclass!!
