A very much underrated comedy, which was a real pleasure to watch., 6 June 2010
Author: mary-jane-xxxx from United Kingdom

The creators of this programme set themselves a difficult challenge. This was to make a comedy out of a very dark subject, the Second World War, and a social taboo, bigamy. Yet they succeeded and gave the world this hilarious sit-com.

I just loved the peripheral characters, especially Ron, who got all the best lines.

Yvonne was wonderful as Gary's first wife. She was amusing and very sarcastic; she always had a very apt answer for Gary. Yet she was also very vulnerable. The character of Phoebe tried by patience a little. She was intelligent and strong enough to run a public house in a rough area of London during a war and yet she needed the support of Reg and deferred to Gary's opinion on almost every issue.
