'Eldorado' could make a return to TV screens after staff at the BBC bombarded new director general George Enetwistle with requests for it to be brought back
'Eldorado' could be set to return to TV screens.
BBC bosses are being bombarded with requests for the soap - about ex-pat Brits living in Spain - to make a sensational return to screens by staff, who want new director general George Entwistle to consider a remake.
The soap only ran for one year from 1992 to 1993, and was cancelled by then-controller of the BBC Alan Yentob.
According to the Daily Star newspaper, a source said: "There are a lot of us who want it back. It was given the chop too quickly.
"A lot of people are emailing the new director general to let them know we want it back."
However the BBC has claimed there are no plans right now to have 'Eldorado' return.
At the end of its short run, 'Eldorado' - which starred the likes of Polly Perkins, Jesse Birdsall and Darren Newton and ended with the line: "You can't trust anyone these days" - was receiving nine to 10 million viewers per episode.
