Squire Haggard, the womanising, destitute former friend of the Prince of Wales, optimistically searches for rich men "willing" to part with their money, and rich, beautiful women willing to part with their virtue. His handsome son, Roderick, a typical Regency Buck, falls in love very easily, and the objects of his desire just happen to be very beautiful Ladies of Quality, who are heiresses to large fortunes. Squire Haggard, desperate to restore the family fortune, often uses his son in his 'get rich, quick' schemes - however, Roderick's foolishness usually brings his father's schemes undone. Their sly underhanded servant, Grunge, despises his 'put upon' position in life and, through guile and other means, has actually been able to acquire more wealth than his master. This money, however, is often at stake through the Squire's involving Grunge in his plots. Written by David McAnally <D.McAnally@uq.net.au>

So funny but aired at the wrong time
5 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this is my bedsit on Saturday afternoons after the sport. It was the funniest and quirkiest programmes ever made. Aired at completely the wrong time (9.00pm midweek on BBC2 would have been perfect).

Each week Squire Haggard (played by Keith Barron excellent in this role)got into some ludicrous seedy scrape and escaped (sort of) with honour lost with the help, and hindrance, of his son Roderick. The scene when Roderick declines Nathaniel Grunge a duel (through overt cowardice) but offers to, "fight your tailor to the death" sums up the multilevel comedy and insults all round.

I loved this series but it finished because a Saturday afternoon audience would never watch such high class well acted comedy-it was above everyone's head-hence the success of Noel's House Party.

Bring Haggard back at a proper time for people can think.
