An overlooked gem of surreal humour
26 January 2004 | by (Worthing, England) – See all my reviews

I was watching a recent programme highlighting Britain's top 50 sitcoms, and I was extremely disappointed to see that this gem of surreal humour had been overlooked. I wish they would bring the entire series out on dvd, as this was one of the tv highlights of my teenage years. The cast was led by Timothy West playing a northern mill owner, Bradley Hardacre, plus his dysfunctional family, and the working class family led by Agnes Fairchild with the best heaving bosom on tv! I distinctly remember having a crush on her wimpy son who wanted to become a poet instead of a miner, played by Gary Cady. The series poked fun at so many genres and other programmes (my favourite poke being at Brideshead Revisited with the character of Morris Hardacre, complete with teddy bear!) and deserves to be re-aired to a greater audience.
