Return of the Condor Heroes 1984 followed on from the Legend of the Condor Heroes 1983. There was great continuation between the two series as most of the supporting cast returned to reprise their roles. It was up to Andy Lau who played Yeung Gor and Idy Chan who played Siu Long Nui to continue the magic of the drama series since Felix Wong, Barbara Yung, and Michael Miu did such a fantastic job in Legend of the Condor Heroes. At the time they did not disappoint as this series drew rave reviews. Andy Lau is one of the best leads to have ever played Yeung Gor. His portrayal of the character was top notch, Idy Chan also put in a great effort as Siu Long Nui. Many still consider the 1984 version to be the best version ever. Even author Jin Yong cited this series as the one he most enjoyed watching. This is due to the series being pretty close to the novel. Although they did add some extra scenes for some support characters because star actors played those roles. For example, the odd choice of having Kent Tong (a superstar at the time) play Mongolia Prince, Fok Do (a relatively minor character) and Simon Yam play Yer Lut Chai as examples. Lisa Lui is an honorable mention as Lee Mok Sau and Susanna Au Yeung did well as Wong Yung. The songs for this series are classic. Some of the best songs I've heard for a wuixa drama. The only remake I think that bettered this version was the 1995 one starring Louis Koo and Carmen Lee, only because that drama was sort and more true to the novel. The acting and cast for that was just as good. More recent remakes fail in the acting department or for its cast or for being unfaithful to the novel. Which is a shame as they have good special effects and breath taking views. If you love the Jin Yong novel, my tip is you either watch The Condor Heroes 1995 or this version, Return of the Condor Heroes 1984.
