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.
