Reading a newspaper article recently about Amanda Redman leaving New Tricks got me thinking, what was that sitcom I could remember her in, after a lot of research I found it. so here we go with Streets Apart.
Streets Apart is one of those many forgotten sitcoms, but this time from the BBC. It starred Amanda Redman and ran for two series in 1988 and 1989, twenty four episodes in total.
The series was well received and sold well around the world, yet it never gets a regular repeat showing.
Sylvie and Bernie, are two childhood sweethearts whose paths have taken very different routes. When they reunite by accident and neither is entirely truthful about what happened in between.
