Kate Swift has always know her place in the world. "I was a rich bitch! I was good at it! I liked it!" Imagine her horror when both her husband and all her ill-gotten cash vanish, leaving her to fend for herself for the first time ever. Add in her mad old dad, Sir Horrace Mainwaring, boozy journalist Jack, Australian ex-criminal Gloria and Detective Inspector Latham, a sarcastic policeman and it's a recipe for trouble! Written by
I grew up watching this series, and i was disappointed that it only ran for two series. The comedy that comes through each episode is brilliant.
Joanna Lumley as Kate Swift revels in being self centred, but shows her true feelings to the inner circle she surrounds herself with. John Bowe as Jack Booker is hilarious as a drunken reporter who falls in with Kate, and Nadine Garner as ex-jailbird Gloria O'Grady adds the finishing touch to a fantastic show that is completely underrated.
This show deserves a UK DVD release for all the fans that will remember this fine show. It is a must see for fans of Joanna Lumley, a role where she shines and revels at being a bitch....and she plays it beautifully
