I'd forgotten all about this series until I came across it again this week.
Full of marvellous actors and obviously the jump off point for many of them - just look at the list - anything where Andy Hamilton, Phil Pope, Jimmy Mulville and Neil Pearson appear on the screen must be a winner.

Neil Pearson as Mungo is excellent as is Howard Lew Lewis (the chap who played Elmo in Brush Strokes)

Search this out and watch it - you won't regret it.
