"Sorry..." harks back to the early 1980's and unfortunately hasn't aged well. Henry Nunn is a 60 year old librarian stifled by his marriage to Sybil. He inherits a house from Uncle Crispin so ups and leaves Sybil to move to his new home (as you do). Once in the house he finds the rest of the cast squatter Alex the punk rocker with the green hair, Mumtaz the shopkeeper with the turban (1980s so racism is rife). Finally Doreen and Tom the amiable Northern, working class couple he is a shop steward. All the above continue to use Henry's house as something of a stopping off point during their daily life, much to Henry's irritation.
You can get attached to this programme as the 2 series wear on. Enough to keep watching when you have a spare half an hour but it is a long way from the "must watch" category. Peter Tilbury is a co-writer on the first series and you can see him planting his familiar diatribes on Robin Bailey but these miss the target a lot of the times. I don't know whether the interaction between characters was meant to be awkward but it is. I found Diana Rayworth's Doreen becoming quite enjoyable after a few shows.
There are highs but unfortunately quite a lot of the time the programme doesn't do much. Nice situation, decent actors, decent writers. It could have been better.
