A solid and entertaining comedy
15 February 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Ronnie Corbett was one of the many stars we sadly lost in 2016, and this sitcom was his main real solo project away from 'The Two Ronnies'.

A charming sitcom, with a simple premise, it sadly never features on any 'Best Sitcom ever' polls, partly because in the UK we're spoilt for choice, but also because it was never overly ground-breaking.

It is a solid sitcom though, with some lovely moments, and a good central character in Timothy, which Corbett plays with effortless charm and boyish appeal.

I think it's high time the BBC repeated it actually, as a tribute to Corbett and to help it find a new audience.
