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>

Just received all the DVDs
22 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

Just received all 18 episodes on DVD which I ordered, I've watched three of them so far.

You know how for years you tell younger people how great an old series was and then it comes on and you don't even crack a smile when watching it? Well I'm glad to say that this isn't one of those. It had me in stitches and was even better than I remembered! The combination of the superb acting skills of the two (now very famous) main actors as well as the ridiculous coincidences and the wistful love story is irresistible.

Buy it. Now.
