Londons Burning Fan Tributes50 Paulie from Ireland: Londons Burning was so good. The guys were masters at fish extinguishing. And they had really funny lines. I liked the Greek boy with the Dutch girlfriend. Dutch girls are really dirty. I had one once. Lol. I was sad when he died. Maybe I will to holland and look her up. They should bring LB back, for sure.
49 Karen Vingoe from Sheffield: I use to watch it every Sunday night without fail, and I loved it and I have got series 1-10 on dvd. My favourite character in it was Sub Officer John Hallam played by Sean Blowers, and I thought that it was sad when he left but the episode in which he died after falling from the gantry was absolutely brilliant. Please repeat london's Burning as there is nothing really any good on nowadays, it is all complete rubbish.

19 kathleen from london: i used to love londons burning pity they never brought it back my favorite was bayleaf sadly no longer with us what a great /actor he was,
18 Julian from Middlesex: ITV1 seriously needs to recommission "London's Burning". A superb series (till it all went soapy in 1998ish) which was a rare thing in audience demographic terms- both men and women loved it...for different reasons. Men for the male bonding and explosions. And women just love firemen essentially. The BBC have struck ratings gold of late with revived series like Dr Who. This is former hit ITV could easily and plausibly revive to further successes!
17 amanda from castleford: please please bring back londons burning it was the best i never missed an episode
16 sandra gill from leeds: i will never forget the first episode when they brought that baby out of that house and when sub lost his eyebrows that was a classic.
15 Chrissyboy from Catford: The show was fantastic up until a few years before it finished. After that, the PC brigade hijacked it and it and it went the same way as "The Bill" - Limp un-engaging storylines and with all the original favourite actors gone.
14 Adam from Bedford: If ITV repeat the old Heartbeat episodes on ITV 2 & 3. Why shouldn't they show London's Burning. If Granada + was still around. It would be on that.
13 james from leeds west yorkshire: bring it back or at least repeat it on one of itv channels cos thers nowt worth watchin on them. londons burning 1986-1988-2002
12 Eden from Phoenix Arizona: I love this series! Does anyone know if they plan on releasing all 14 series on to dvd???
11 Keith from East London: I am 22 and always used to watch londons burning every sunday night as a kid at 9, it was great. The special fire for the fire and the stunts were better then movie. anyway its a shame thay had to spoil it with the last series but i still remember the best ones they focused on the fire fighting...
10 victoria from bolton: They should bring back londons burning along with the old directors
9 rach from gillingham dorset: london's burning was well amazing, definately bring it back, we need more good looking fire fighters back on tv. and the comedy was brilliant, sundays aren't the same.
8 Hayley from Birmingham: ITV are repeating other shows, so why not London's Burning? It was a great show and fun to watch
7 layton toward from newcastle: in series 2 episode one the watch were talking to a.d.o petrei about him going to live in swanage and vaseline said where is swanage any way
6 lblbl from kings lynn: Sub Officer John Hallam's horrific death in 1996 (series 9) was my favourite moment from the show. if anyone forgot, he and Geoff Pearce were conducting a rescue over an unstable gantry 100 feet above the basementy when it broke in two and John fell to his death.
5 Anthony from Truro: I can't believe that this show isn't being repeated anywhere on tv, according to the TV Genius!
It was a brilliant show, and seemed near to real life as possible, until the last few series, upon which it turned from fighting fires to fighting feelings for each other, with the occasional fire dropped in.
It definitely edged out Steel River Blues on drama scenes.
Really miss the show.
