Excellent and underrated comedy
4 August 2000 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An excellent translation of the popular Radio 4 comedy series only made 1 series on the BBC but was excellently written and very funny. John Gordon Sinclair plays Robert, a struggling actor who will do anything for the big break with an incompetent agent, Desmond (played by comedy veteran Victor Spinetti) and his teacher girlfriend Sue, played by Gina McKee who went on to appear in several major dramas.

The series was not recommisioned but was replaced with a very similar series Nelsons Column which was basically the same main character as a journalist this time.

Very funny and highly recommended.
