The complete third series of 'London's Burning' features Blackwall Fire Station's Blue Watch in some of their most dramatic stories - crashed chemical lorries and burning ships counterpoint the more personal stories of the firefighters. It's this combination of drama and personal issues that made 'London's Burning' a huge success for ITV1, with viewers loving the quirky but human characters who put their lives on the line every week.
Episode One Josie is leaving Blackwall for a post at another station. The Watch's farewell gift is a male stripper. Vaseline's replacement is Colin Parrish, straight out of training and very green.
Episode Two Josie is acting Sub at her new station and supervises a 'shout' involving a crashed lorry, with two injured workmen. Blue Watch arrive on the scene and have to take their orders from Josie.
Episode Three A drug war leads to a fire in a block of flats. Colin chases one of the suspects and is threatened with a knife. Bayleaf comes to his rescue, but at the cost of a slashed face.
Episode Four After Hallam saves a distressed claimant who set fire to himself in a DHSS office, Blue Watch are called to a collapsed trench on a building site, where a young worker has been buried alive.
Episode Five High up on the side of an office tower block, a window cleaner's arm gets stuck in a cradle mechanism. A terrified Sicknote is sent down on a rope to rescue him. At the suggestion of Clare, Bayleaf applies for a transfer.
Episode Six Kate Stevens joins Blue Watch and proves her worth at an accident involving two cars and a chemical lorry.
Episode Seven Blue Watch are on night duty and have been called out to a number of timewasting 'looney tune' shouts. If nothing else, the crew are pleased that Bayleaf is back in the mess.
Episode Eight The Watch are called out to a shout at an old man's flat. While Malcolm goes to collect his bravery award, Tate has a routine medical and is shocked to hear he is to be taken off duty at once.
