One of the Best
18 August 2001 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This is one of the funniest British comedies I've ever seen, besides The New Statesman. Mr. Brittas and Carol have got to be the funniest characters in this serial. Mrs Brittas also provides some humour, and each episode guarantees a few laughs. Definitely worth watching!!
