Classic comment
16 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The secrectary pleayed by the lovely Rebecca Lacey - and she said to Miss Flood in one episode Hell have no fury like a woman's corns Instead of Woman Scorned hilarious

It was a delightful comedy and as as been said - a great shame that it is not available on DVD - Miss flood trying desperately to get her young secrectary into line and to behave as one should and Zoe trying to get her man up to date with life -

The Garfudge - i.e. the garage in an advertisement for a house that they were buying was typical gentle humour

Another classic comment - How can I have any pride when I support Partick Thislte
