Terrible sitcom that lingered far too long
6 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

This series was immediately seen as one of the worst sitcoms for many years. Just as TV comedy was becoming gritty and modern, the BBC decided to launch this old fashioned sitcom. Certainly, some of the jokes had seen better days. Blatantly unfunny, it amazingly defied its critics and continued for several years, when one series was more than enough.
