- Story Text: We've seen them through high school, graduating to college, through various drug addictions and love triangles and countless other dramas.
Now, the show with Los Angeles' most famous post code -- Beverley Hills 90210 -- enters its seventh season and is still going strong.
One of its stars and original cast members, Tori Spelling, flew to London this week to promote the show's 200th episode.
As good girl Donna Martin, Spelling has seen her character grow from a slightly dense teenager to her coming of age. But one thing she's held onto since the start of the series is her virginity.
In it's seventh season, BH 90210 -- as it's affectionately called by its fans -- marks another milestone as college graduation draws nearer and the gang must contemplate their future.
Everyone's best buddy, Brandon (Jason Priestly), makes a move from the college newspaper to news director at the college television station.
Resident sex kitten Valerie (Tiffani-Amber Thiessen) falls in love with a movie star and Kelly (Jenny Garth) is getting back on stable ground after recovering from her addiction to drugs.
Donna (Spelling), meanwhile, faces a romantic dilema -- being torn between the charms of hunky fireman Cliff and long-term boyfriend, David (Brian Austin Green).
The story about a group of young adults growing up in Beverley Hills, BH 90210 is watched by more than 200 million people around the world in countries including the United States, France, Italy, Australia, Britain and Brazil.
From school students to college seniors, the cast now face new challenges of deciding what to do with their lives after college.
Old friendships are tested as new relationships blossom.
Whatever the drama, the gang can always find solace at their favourite stomping grounds, The Peach Pit and The Peach Pit After Dark.
In the show's 200th episode, "With This Ring", Brandon and Tracy's relationship is at an impasse after Tracy finds a diamond ring that she regretfully finds out is not meant for her.
The ring had been meant for Kelly who Brandon had propsed to years before, only to be turned down. But does Brandon still hold torch for the one woman who claims to know him better than any other? Tracy confronts Kelly with an ultimatum -- love Brandon or leave him forever.
Donna has her own love problems. Should she choose the safe, dependable Cliff or stay with her first true love, David? Will Donna finally give up her virginity and consumate the turbulent affair? The 200th episode airs on Britain's Sky television on May 7.
