No Rising Damp
17 January 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This was the great Leonard Rossiter's, of the classic ITV sitcom Rising Damp, last sitcom. He, and not Leslie Crowther, played supermarket manager Norman Tripper. ITV made great sitcoms during the 70s but went downhill with the start of the 80s, and ever since, and Tripper's Day was definitely a downhill effort. It's better to remember Leonard Rossiter as Mr Rigsby the landlord from hell.
