Editor - The music at the end of the last episode was in fact the main theme tune by Simon May but with lyrics.

Hi,
I live near the old studio set where the filmed the serie El Dorado and basically I am looking for some old pictures of those days.
Hope you can help me with that.
Thank you

The trouble with Eldorado was that it was years ahead of its time. Now that people are leaving the UK for Spain in ever increasing numbers there are plenty of real people with real stories that can be used as the basis for a new series, instead of the rubbish that was churned out in the original.
Dave ( Torrevieja, Spain ) - 09/10/05

It was brought to my attention that my car is mentioned.
I am the owner of the A610 and it is in original condition. I've been more than happy to have Eldorado fans see that car, sit in it when I've been approached. If ever you are interested in doing anything I might be around with the car.
Also on the site it states in the same paragraph that it was an MR2. It was a Triumph TR7. I've watched the scene frame by frame and you can see it change. The TR7 is easily identifiable from the lights and bonnet louvres (I'm a classic car anorak :) ).

Just like to congratulate on a great website dedicated to Eldorado and wondering when the campaign will be starting to get the best soap back on tv?
James M - 28/07/04

Eldorado was the best thing in my life in the early 90's, I couldnt keep my eyes away from the ever slick Marcus Tandy and his wily ways. ooh, what a corker. He just wasn't the same in his later shows such as BUGS.
But the show itself was fabulous. There were many nights when I would sit in after being stood up by my ex boyfriend, Cedric, and have a tub of popcorn and watch good old Bunny and good old Fiz in that sunny false resort.

I Agree Eldorado was treated abismaly by the BBC, It was he best Soap on TV and when it is on UK Gold it is the only soap I ever watch. The others are all depressing and just recycle each others storylines. I have a copy of the Video Adios Eldorado, I bought it the day after the final episode It is still worth watching,
Andrew - 05/05/03

hi there
just been reading your eldorado page with some interest.
I was a massive fan of the show, I dont know why, it just was refreshing at the time
some of the fixtures and fittings were grabbed by eager fans in the right place at the right time a friend of mine from London, who now lives in Spain, had the plaque of the doctors door, and some other items,
someone who I also got in touch with from Scotland now owns, Jessies 1992 Renault Alpine car as used in eldorado, the blue car they blew up was an old mr2 replacement
I hope they do bring it back in some form, the BBC in a way did try a few years ago with a mini series called , sunshine, or sunbreak or something like that, which was set on greece if i remember, it was very similar to eldorado in nature, and was very very good
daniel - 23/04/03

I TOTTALLY AGREE, BRING BACK ELDORADO. I AM DESPERATE TO GET INTOUCH WITH FANS FROM ELDORADO, TO WATCH EPSIODES, AND SHARE VIEWS. ELDORADO TOWARDS THE END AND SEEING THE RERUN ON UK GOLD SHOWED ME IT HAAD MORE CREDBILITY THAN ANY OF THE TRASHY AUSTRALIAN SOAPS, WITH GREAT LIGHTS, SETS, STORYLINE INCREASING, SUNSHINE, EXCELLENT THEME TUNE. WHY, OH WHY DID THE BBC GIVE IN TO THE CRITICS. IM 24 DESPERATE TO GET HOLD OF A COPY OF THE MEMORAL HOUR SPECIAL THEY RELISED AFTER ELDORADO FINISHED AND CAN NOT GTEIT ANYWHERE,
ALSO TO BORROW SUM TAPES OF ELDORADO. IM SO KEEN IM TRUSTING U WITH MY NUMBER PEEPS.

My name is alberto Junco. I used to be the policeman in the cast fo "El Dorado" BBCTV in 1992.
I would be very pleased if you could try to get me a picture of any of my performances in one of the 12 episodes that I shot at the coin studiosl. I would really apreciate to get anything as a nice souvenir and remembrance of my experience in TV.
Thanks very much indeed.
Alberto Junco - 22/01/03

eldorado should of not been axed as it was getting better and better and by now it would of been a 5 times a week soap and it would be beating emmerdale and family affairs in the viewings. so bring back eldorado. calvin saxton mansfield uk
