Why did ITV pull the plug on the second season? SetzersGretsch 23 April I remember this series too, and I agree, I'd love to see it repeated. What I remember most of all about "Head Over Heels" was the fact the final episode ended in a cliff-hanger when the chubby girl that never seemed to have much luck with "boys" confided in a friend that she was pregnant.
This was supposed to lead into the second series ITV actually commissioned another seriesbut just before shooting was about to begin on season two, Carlton TV who made the show pulled the plug on it at the eleventh hour. I remember reading an interview with one of the show's stars some time afterwards and she said none of the cast and crew were given a reason as to why the show was axed, but rumours suggest that ITV were ploughing a lot of it's drama budget into "Soldier, Soldier" which would become one of that channel's biggest hits of the 90s.
The theme song, also entitled "Head Over Heels" was sung by Nick Its Beautiful - Sylvester Harper - Head Over Heels (CD) and it was actually released as a single which I bought.
I think that's what most people remember most of all about the show because it fitted so well into the 50s nostalgia atmosphere. The song was also used as part of the show when Nick Haverson's character "Daniel Dunn" sung it during the last episode to win a talent contest. Although I Its Beautiful - Sylvester Harper - Head Over Heels (CD) seen it myself, I have heard it's been repeated several times since its original airing.
Its Beautiful - Sylvester Harper - Head Over Heels (CD) regional ITV stations have shown "Head Over Heels" in weekend afternoon time slots, and some have shown it in the early hours of the morning, Its Beautiful - Sylvester Harper - Head Over Heels (CD).
So there's hope it might be repeated again. The entire series was also available on video cassette about a year after the series ended, but the title has since been deleted. I don't think it's available on DVD. Ladies, you are not alone, I absolutely loved this series. Aged 8 at the time, my parents would not allow me to stay up "late" on a school night to watch it whilst my older sister was allowed to watch.
By way of compromise, they would tape it for me to watch the next day. I would get up really early and try and watch a bit before school and then rush home to watch it after school.
I remember wishing Camilla and Jimmy would get it together and also wondering who got Patty pregnant. Gutted there was no second series! A couple of years ago I went to Dubai on holiday and the evening we arrived in the hotel I flicked through the channels and randomly came across an episode of this which brought back fond memories.
Would love to get this on DVD, how annoying, isn't always the way with the best programmes! I remember it well,the series revolved around a posh ladies finishing school run by Gracie Ellis,assisted by Mr Dunn the vicar and his wife Flora,plus Mr Ellis who was a teacher at the school. He had a daughter Catherine at the school and a son Jimmy who was the handy man,The Dunns had a daughter Stella at the school and a son Daniel who I think was a trainee Its Beautiful - Sylvester Harper - Head Over Heels (CD).
Camilla De La Mer arrived,after being expelled from her previous school for setting fire to it. She arrived with leather jacket and rock and roll attitude. She converted the girls to rock and roll and helped Jimmy spruce up the local cafe,turning it into a juke joint.
