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
Brilliant comedy series with some great performances
As a series this is vastly under sung. Lumley is good but the support she gets from Nadine Gardner and John Bowe is fantastic. Richard Vernon is classic as Sir Horace and John Gaddas a good further support. Each episode has enough variety to be good stories in their own right and the support cast as visitors are excellent in their performances. It is sad that this series gets very little acclaim and even only minimal entries about it. I eventually found a copy of the series via a Canadian source. I strongly recommend this to anyone with a sense of humour who enjoys Joanna Lumley and the sort of humour which she can perform at her best.
