The Upper Hand was fantastic and I have fond memories of it.
It was about a man moving from the the big city with his daughter, to become the housekeeper of a wealthy woman's house, whom she lived with her son and mother.
Everything about it was just great. The story lines were hilarious, but also there were so many touching moments. They were both clearly made for each other, however never seemed to get together. Instead they were always arguing, and so was the son and daughter! But deep down they all really loved each other and were a big family.
The show was just a classic 90's show and ITV at its best. If only all the comedy's they made were as good as this one!
Just a shame that its not still on. However it is sometimes repeated and when it is, it is well worth watching.
The theme tune was also great!
