Excellet, underrated sitcom
27 July 2009 | by (Nottingham) – See all my reviews

When Duty Free started in 1984 it set viewing records for a sit-com at the time - and its easy to see why.

There are plenty of finely observed comic lines (mostly from Gwen Taylor's feisty character Amy) and the basic premise of the couple trying to have an affair but somehow being always thwarted provides for much comic tension.

All the cast fit their roles perfectly, and its always a pleasure to see Keith Barron do comedy.

Yes, the series was filmed in the studio. Yes, there are better sit-coms around - but there are far worse and this is definitely above average for an ITV situation comedy. Definitely worth a look.
