Excellent
10 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

This was an excellent one-off series, starring Ronnie Barker and Josephine Tewson. Set in the late 1930s, it was a story about a short-sighted removals man and a house maid who move into a cottage together in the Oxfordshire countryside. This sitcom was funny, original and it's a shame that there were only six episodes made, and also that it was never repeated or made available on DVD or video. It makes a change to see a sitcom that doesn't reply on sex, violence and bad language to get a cheap laugh. If you ever get the chance to see it, do so. You won't regret it.
