Boon Classic TV Show
Michael Elphick as the modern day lone ranger. Jack of all trades, Ken Boon, solves all matter of problems for everyone except himself. Classic long running drama that introduced Neil Morrisey to the TV masses.
Boon Fan Tributes14 Wayne Barrett from Staffordshire: Loved the show when I was a schoolboy and beyond,just simply a great show. Now we can enjoy them all over again on dvd. Wish there were were extras though, such as on set interviews and behind the scenes-(I know these exist because They are on the extras on the "vampire motorcycle" dvd )and wish the prices were a bit cheaper! Best series are 4&5, being a Forest fan, it brings a warm nostalgic glow to remember those long hot summers of 89&90, my teenage years, and Forest winning at wembley in both those years Cloughie even appearing in the episode "Work, rest and play"! They sadly don't make shows like this anymore. R.I.P. Michael.
13 Mo from Kidderminster: Some shows of Boon were shot at Chaddesley. Corbett I remember well, but always love the show real down to ground no american rubbish. Thank you for showing it again could watch it forever, keep showing it my grandchildren love it.
12 BEE from ESSEX: started watching Boon on men&motors, it was brilliant to watch this series again - then it suddenly stopped, how come, it's totally got to come on again as brilliant acting from all in this series.
11 Richard Stephenson from Seaham: Boon was a legend alright, I especially liked the episode where Boon took out the Snuff Video ring when Rocky inadvertently got one in his copy of Police Academy 3 by accident from Sanjet Video Rental. Awesome, just awesome!
10 Chris Dwain Tomlin from Pegswood: Boon is a legend, this is my favourite show ever. Much better than the boon in lost, he is rubbish.
Michael Elphick is so cool, I wish I was like him.
9 Derek from Long Eaton: I was fairly young when this one, about 7. Dont know much of the show, but as a Speedway fan remember the show doing a scene at Long Eaton Speedway on Station Road. Can anybody advise what this episode and series was?
8 pavitter from birmingham: Well ive never seen the programme but my dad used to own a shop where they used to film the show. We had a brown volvo 240 Estate. Yes, thats right its the one they used in the programme. If you dont believe me the number plate was ONE 888W. Would it be possible to have some pictures of the car as i have never seen it but heard about it. Thank you. Feel free to email me any time.
7 victoria murphy from liverpool: I loved Lesley-Anne Sharpe, who played Debbie Yates in Boon. A feisty character that one, beautifully acted. Cheers!
6 Alan Williams from Hertfordshire: Hi Ho Silver....Here come the Lone Ranger.... He's riding on down.... to rescue meeeee.... wow, what a show Boon was/is.... best thing to ever hit british TV.... Or any TV for that matter.... bring it back to stay!!!! RIP Michael my friend
5 Peter Madeley from Wolverhampton: Hi Ho Silver, You could be Lone Ranger... Ho Ho, fantastic. Boon was without doubt the favourite programme of my formative years. Michael Elphick (RIP) was the best character actor this nation has produced and will be saddly missed by all. All I have now is my friend in Long Eaton who is Boon's double, I get him to dress in Leather trousers to keep the spirit of Boon alive. Tatty bogle xx
4 Bernard Betts from York: I don't know why, after all these years, I love watching so much. Maybe it's to do with friends sticking together and (usually) happy endings. I like the mouthorgan snippets for the intervals.
3 Neil Lovelock from Oooohhh: Ooooooooohhhh I love tight leather trousers and Boon
2 margaret goodwin from australia: I watch boon on uk tv and enjoy it a lot, I am hope that they [uk tv] will reapet it soon.
1 Nicholas Cox from Redhill Surrey: My favourite one is the one featuring, the Barge Trip, and the Tortoises. Larry Lamb, could have taught Lennox Lewis, a thing or two.
