A Wonderful BBC TV Series with great actors
8 September 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I am astonished that this is not yet out on DVD. It was simply wonderful comedy and featured actors and actresses who went on to become famous individually after this show.

Basically the BBC description of this show sums it up: "This was a corking comedy-drama featuring dazzling Decalogue and all-round knock-out performances. Robbie Coltrane was particularly outstanding as the rotund but sexy Danny, and Emma Thompson was appealing as the sharp, strong and independent Suzi. Their romance was played out against a background of funny, dramatic and touching scenes depicting a band, well past its best-by date, suddenly finding a new lease of life. Adding to the heady brew was Richard Wilson as the Majestics' hilariously dour manager Eddie (almost a prototype Victor Meldrew), and Katy Murphy as his lippy secretary Janis Toner. A joy." What I don't understand about the (new?) IMDb system is why the most known and regular cast members don't appear on the main page cast list for "Tutti Frutti" - only later under individual episodes.
