Vastly Underrated
22 September 2006 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I stumbled upon this TV programme whilst channel hopping one night. My finger was poised over the channel button but thirty seconds was enough to hook me. For the next hour or so my girlfriend and I were riveted to the programme that was both very funny and dramatic, with solid believable characters played beautifully by the ensemble cast. I had no idea what I was watching, or by whom.

The following day I discovered it was this, 'Roger, Roger' by the great John Sullivan who had written the now legendary 'Only Fools And Horses' television series. However, no one at work was talking about it nor did I ever see any reviews over subsequent weeks. I believe the series only ran for one short series so presumably it didn't achieve ratings or critical success. It beggars belief because I still remember this programme as one of the best things I saw on television during the latter 1990's. The plot follows the lives, on and off duty, of a group of mini-cab drivers. Misfits and monsters some of them, some were also warm, intelligent and affectionate, all were funny, but as one would expect from Sullivan there was also real dramatic action and character development over the course of the series. One really believed and cared about these people.

Why it never caught on remains a mystery to me. And why no DVD has appeared makes me wonder whether I didn't imagine the whole thing. Here I am writing the first IMDb review of it. I would love to see it again. I remember it as being a masterpiece, but one that seemingly only I recognised.
