a welcome home for John Thaw
20 January 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

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.
