    Budgie? Or whatever Fergie's creation was called.
    Either way, it sounds like a Thomas The Tank Engine-type show.

    It's not that old (is it?) Too much time watching kiddies TV as an adolescent.

    This may be easy for some of the older members. I loved it as a kid.

    Simon MacCorkindale played British Doctor (or professor?) Jonathan Chase with a special skill in crime fighting in this early 1980's sci-fi set in New York.

    Clues for the weekend:
    Key is the "Special Skill" (worthy of a b-list comic book super hero) if you knew this, you'd know the program.
    Only 8 episodes made, plus a feature length one
    Ursula Andress stared in the feature length TV film.
    Known (for a time) as David Lettermans favorite program. Apparently, he even paid tribute to it with a touching short film when it was cancelled.

    Manimal? I don't remember the character's name in that show but the rest sounds kinda like it.

    The only other thing is I don't remember it as being British. But I WAS young back then.

    I googled it. It was Manimal, so it's Aldazar's turn.

    Actually, according to a book I have at home - "The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Fantasy" - it was a US production, I found out last night.

    Anyway, next:
    A man killed in a subway accident is 'reborn' and genetically modified by the US Government then forbidden to see his family.

    Damn, remember seeing the trailers for this one, but it's name doesn't spring to mind yet.

    Oh, I never said it was a British production, just that he was a British doctor.

    Mea culpa, read it wrong I guess. But I did get the right answer so...not all bad then.

    Anyway, not Gemini Man. I've not actually heard of that I don't think. This one only lasted one season IIRC.

    I got flashbacks of it on my way home last night and it's now really bugging me.
    He was a portly middle agged chap that fell (pushed?) under a subway train. They then used his Brain in a 20-something body. I think he kept trying to help his wife because the insurance company refused to pay out saying it was suicide.
    Pretty sure it was a Sky 1 program, around the same time as the first series of Dark Angel.

    Can I "phone a friend" ?

    I know that the guy who fell, as well as the voice in his inner dialog was played John Goodman, IIRC.

    Damned if I knowthe title, but I'll HB it.

    Umm, 6 Million Doller Man?
