Between 1994 – 2000 and in 2003 New Zealand’s longest running soap Shortland Street screened on ITV, but where is it now??

As much as I love Home & Away (& sometimes Neighbours), I miss NZ’s Shortland Street!

Whilst the show did used to be cringeworthy, it has much improved since 2007 and i think it’s time that it came back!

The storylines are strong, the acting has improved tenfold and the general look of the show is world class!

It’s not that hard to catch up on (maybe a 1 hour launch episode explaining some crucial info about it’s current storylines) but it would be great for the UK to see a Kiwi soap!

So come on ITV or Five and BRING BACK SHORTLAND STREET!!!
