Regarding the other reviewer's comments on Agony,while I share your enthusiasm for the series you were a bit amiss in your facts. Diana Weston played the secretary not the boss in the first series and Jane's Mum is Jewish not Scottish. That was the whole point of her character. Given Maureen Lipman's subsequent popularity I am surprised that only three episodes have ever been released on video and are now out of print. I had to go looking on eBay for them. I agreed with your comments on it not being a typically British series with the snappy one-liners, it took someone with Lipman's comic timing to make it work. It was a shame seeing her waste her talent on those BT ads but I suppose they provided for her old age.
