The first of a special two-part mini-series tying up the glitzy soap's loose ends. Starring Joan Collins, John Forsythe, Linda Evans
Denver two years on: Blake is given a full pardon but has lost everything he possessed and fears for his life; Krystle escapes from the Swiss sanitarium; and Alexis embarks on a new business adventure.
When the American soap abruptly ended in 1989 both fans and cast were shocked.
"We should have ended with some kind of dignity," says John Forsythe. "The thousands of letters I got were all on the same theme - is this the end?
How does it all come out?"
Joan Collins feels that "to just end the show arbitrarily, up in the air like that, was quite shocking. I was surprised by the cold-blooded nature of it all. At the time I said: 'Well, I hope they're going to do a movie or something to sort of pick the whole thing up.'"
