Storyline

Tom Chance's life is plagued by coincidences. Even his initial meeting with his beloved Alison happened by pure chance - when he went to a local pub to meet another girl (also called Alison) for a 'blind date'. As this was the same pub that Alison had arranged to meet her cousin, Tom Chesney, for the first time since they were both children, it was a coincidence waiting to happen! Tom Chance's frequent brushes with coincidences also lead to his being continually arrested by police for crimes he did not commit, with the result that the Police Sergeant finally issues instructions, to his force, *not* to arrest Tom - even when faced with the most compromising of circumstances involving Tom. Written by David McAnally <D.McAnally@uq.net.au>

Great 1980s Telly!
22 March 2014 | by (England) – See all my reviews

One of the quirkiest and funniest sitcoms of the 1980s, this series captivates me. The very English middle class awkwardness of the relationship between the two central characters, the array of coincidences which dog poor Tom's life, Tom's bizarre way of speaking,the acting, the music - it's absolute perfection. How I wish they made TV like this nowadays! Captivating telly programmes - including the Beiderbecke Trilogy, Edge Of Darkness, Spitting Image and, of course, Chance In A Million - seemed far more prevalent back in the decade of shoulder pads and brick phones. So glad this is now on DVD, I waited for years!
