A true masterpiece, even funnier than 'Only Fools And Horses'. A one-hour pilot was screened in August 1996 followed by a series of six one-hour episodes in early 1998. A second series of seven one-hour episodes followed in late 1999, making just fourteen in all. Quite why it was never put on DVD or even VHS, I'll never know. It wasn't even repeated, which is unusual for the BBC. They usually like to get as much out of a series as they can and yet here they have an absolute gem destined to fade away and be forgotten. If you've never seen it and somehow get the chance to watch an old, worn-out tape don't let the chance pass you by. It really was superb.
