Simply cannot see what people see in this typical ITV bomb with (to make it worse) the 'kiss of death to any sitcom' Gwen Taylor.
The odd glimpses I remember seeing made for dire viewing and then it featured recently on some ITV "comedy classic" look back convinced me even more - it doesn't travel well (I made a pun - perhaps some ITV script writer might like to use that).
Keith Barron is OK but this sitcom? Oh dear.
Poor situations, poor lines.
Let's face it, with few exceptions ITV has never ever been a happy hunting ground for decent comedy to the extent that even when they 'pinch' classic comedy from the BBC they managed somehow to kill it stone dead. Look at what happened to Tony Hancock and Morecambe & Wise.
