"Nothing's Going To Change The Way I Feel About You!"
You couldn't turn on a television in the '70's without seeing John Alderton. He was everywhere; 'Please Sir!', 'The Fenn Street Gang', 'Upstairs, Downstairs', 'My Wife Next Door', 'Wodehouse Playhouse', 'Thomas & Sarah' and, of course this, in which he co-starred with wife Pauline Collins. They say opposites attract and it was true in the case of C.D. and Clara. He was a struggling actor, she a dizzy deb. This was not a kids' sitcom. I cherish the scene where Clara made C.D. breakfast in bed and she put a button from her cardigan on his grapefruit because she'd run out of cherries! Terence Brady and Charlotte Bingham had written for the pair before so knew what they were capable of. The resulting show was a sheer delight, a massive hit with the public and critics alike. Lindsay De Paul's catchy theme was the icing on the cake. Sadly, Alderton and Collins were not up for a second series, so Lisa Goddard and Donal Donnelly were brought in and the title changed to 'Yes, Honestly'.
