I used to watch this series with my mum and found it hilarious. What happened? It was probably the best thing on the BBC at the time - well written, well acted and well loved. It not only introduced me to the wonderfully funny and gorgeous Alan Cumming, but had some of the best catch-phrases ever! The sight of the crew doing their 'front exits, back exits, side exits' exercise has lived with me ever since. Like so many other great shows, a new series would spoil it, but is it asking too much for a rerun or video box set?
