Also in Season 4 Episode 10, Madge is seen holding up a sign in the window that says, "Ban Blood Sports". The room she is in does not fit with the layout of the house. When Mike Barbosa enters the house, he enters the room from Madge's right. The sign was held to the left of the house entrance. Besides, the fact is the windows are of two different styles between where the living room is situated from the outside, and the view from the inside. See more »
Charming, soft, slow-paced, believable, delightful. This is one sitcom which never jumps the shark. Dench and Palmer are excellent, of course, but so are the supporting players. (What a shock it must have been to each to have his/her agent call with good news/bad news: "You've got a continuing role in a sitcom, BUT you have to chew scenery with Dame Judi and Geoffrey Palmer.")
