    An English radio station on the Costa del Sol conducted a number of interviews with cast members to mark the 25th anniversary of the start of the show. Here's a couple but there's more with the likes of Julie Hernandez and Polly Perkins on the same YouTube account.

    The video touring the set was interesting. Makes me almost want to watch an episode or two. It seems wrong to have never seen Eldorado. Well...

    If you're going to watch it, skip the first 50 episodes or so. They're absolute trash. It picks up a bit after those, when the new producer comes on board and they've dropped a few of the more wooden actors.

    I totally agree about taking Wogan off air for it, but it did pick up and I was just starting to really enjoy it when they axed it!!!

    It's nothing to be ashamed of. I recall doing something similar with Albion Market :embarrass:

    I'm sure you managed to escape from the Market. I'm certainly not going to admit that I'm on Episode 9 of Eldorado.

    Yes, I served Albion Market with a closure order very early on.

    The allure of Los Barcos is a bit harder to get away from though. Have you made it to the episode yet where they dip their toe into the "rave scene"?

    It is, isn't it!? :oops:

    There are some interesting moments - the mother of the main family wants her children to be Europeans, not "little Englanders".

    Some of the English characters keep referring to their non English neighbours as foreigners.

    I suppose if ever there was a time to revisit Eldorado it would be now in the age of Brexit.

    In the club that looks like someone's living room?

    That's the one. I think Joy's Bar was actually bigger than said "club".

    Adiós Fizz!

    The butt of mostly every Eldorado joke but she wasn't that bad, was she? The actress certainly didn't deserve all the flak she got.

    Poor old Kathy Pitkin did bear the brunt of a lot of the initial scathing reviews. Aside from a bit of panto in '92, she seems to have retired from acting. Keep an eye out for a young Nick "Lock Stock" Moran who turns up to bring her time on Eldorado to a close.

    Yes, he's just paid Bunny a visit. A surprisingly bleak outcome in a show where very little has happened in 40 episodes.

    The episodes have been removed from Youtube, has anyone come across any other source? I had made it to Episode 60 before getting distracted by other stuff, I'd be interested to see how the show reboots itself.

    I just got a postcard from Models Inc. Saying that Eldorado has just arrived in failed Soap hell. Maybe it will escape to YouTube again one day or Satan will release it to pollute the minds of the good and pure. Who knows?

    Poor Eldorado. Hell is a bit harsh, I'd have sent it to purgatory at the very least.
