could well be a historical curiosity in the 21st century?
27 October 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Basil Allenby-Johnson has been living remotely out in the Far East since the end of World War 2. He returns to England at the tail end of the swinging sixties to find a world he no longer recognizes or understands, and consequently this leads him into some very comical situations. Starting out with a lively premise,the pace got slower and slower, so that by the end of the second and last series every body was falling asleep including the viewers.(Although to be fair the second series was subject to various union disputes which may have hindered the production) As the 'swinging sixties' were unrecognizable to Basil, then in the 21 century this series and its characters would be totally unrecognizable to virtually anyone living today, so could well be an historical curio?
