Show Summary

River City is the only Scottish soap on TV. It is set in Shieldinch, a fictional place set in Glasgow.It is not showed in England and it cant be up for a soap award. I think that's unfair because it's the British Soap Awards not the English soap awards. But it is still the best soap on TV in my opinion. One of the great things about it is that it's Scottish so they talk with a Glasgow dialect.

  • Rabbie Burns would be fuming !!!!

    I love River City but am disappointed to hear them sing Auld Lang Zyne !!! It Is Auld Lang Syne if you are pronouncing it as The Bard intended !!!! Even Downtown Abbey managed to get it right in their last on guys !!!!!!
  • By far the best soap on the box

    To my regret I only started watching River City 18 months ago. Now I am totally addicted. When the topic of conversation is about tv programmes, i always ask if they watch River City and if the reply is NO, well they get told in no uncertain terms what they are missing. I am pretty persuasive and they are now converted lol. I love everything about it, and the music, sorry jimbhoy. I only wish there were more episodes. I was disappointed that Paul Brannigan's character Gareth left as I though he played the character well and was very charismatic.moreless
  • Lose The Music Pleeeeeze

    Great show and never miss an episode,,,,,,,,,,,, but ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, please please please, to the people currently writing it, the music interludes, sometimes 3 in an episode are boring and off putting. At least it is in my opinion.

    So if you are reading this, will you please consider cutting it out and writing script instead.

    Also it's time at least one wheelchair user was seen, even as an extra. Feel free to get in touch with me when one is required :-)moreless
  • Its Getting Better

    River City through the years has changed dramatically! When I first seen it I thought it was too english soap like... with fake comedic effect, OTT storylines, based on a community around a pub, stuff we seen plenty times before which is why I refused to watch it... and I was tight it was like Eastenders and Corrination Street.... Dry! after it was turnned into a drama, it added in music which made it different from the soaps in england. The stories got much better, the characters became more 3D than 2D and and I started to love it! only problem is some of the characters like big Bob, I perticularly don't like not anything agiesnt the actor but the character is just too stuffy and boring its garrinteed that in every episode he'll feel sorry for himself... okay hes over wieght but the character is getting too annoying! I love that Lenny is back as he is my fav character! also I would LOVE to see a female villain for a change and less of the gangster villians, great show on showing the rich and the poor side to scotland and unlike anything else from scotland it doesn't all make it out that we're all drunks and alcoholics! which is good it shows the hard working side to scotland which most people in scotland are

    GO R.C!moreless
