John Thaw is Henry Willows, a middle-aged man in middle-management who has been divorced from his wife for seven years and is perfectly happy with the arrangement. Apart from his prudish and pernickety daily cleaner, Enid (Elizabeth Bennett), he's alone - and revels in his hard-won solitude. However, Henry's serenity is shattered when, out of the blue, his eldest child, Matthew (Reece Dinsdale), turns up on his doorstep. It seems that Matthew is disenchanted with life at home because of his mum's new boyfriend, and he wants to stay with his dad - for good.
After being in action shows like the Sweeney and a news reporter in a now forgotten series. Its quite hard to imagine John Thaw playing in a sitcom, however he makes the change quite gracefully in 'Home To Roost'.Which is a delightfully amiable comedy series which is still good fun to watch. So its full marks to Mr Thaw and his team.
