Fussy, PC types of today would object to the stereotyping but that's their short sighted problem. My favourite character was the dad played by John Comer, a very gifted comedy actor who deserved more than bit parts in Summer Wine. The dreary Carter made Summer Wine's Barry seem lively by comparison. I had the hots for the dreamy Anita Carey, and still do. We see endless repeats of Summer Wine and Fools and Horses. Why is this mini classic never shown anymore?
