It takes a very long time to say 'goodnight', sweetheart
2 June 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Nicholas Lyndhurst has always worked had to shed the tag of his most famous creation of Rodney Trotter and this show, made at the height of Only Fools and Horses' fame is an example of this.

Marks and Gran were a big deal when they wrote this show and although the episodes they write are good, once it starts getting farmed out to other writers things go a bit off kilter. The jokes are ofter laboured, the plots absurd and by the end of the run things had long gone past their best. The only bright spark across the whole series (due to both female leads being re-cast) is Nicholas Lyndhurst who takes a character we shouldn't like (he is after all a bigamist) and makes him a hero we root for and that is to his credit.

Overall a pretty average sitcom that while nowhere near the standard of Only Fools and Horses (consistantly penned to perfection by the late great John Sullivan) it provides enough gentle laughs to entertain many to this day.
