A fun pilot for a TV series that was never made.
9 September 2001 | by (Northants, UK) – See all my reviews



I watched this some time ago (I can't believe it was as long ago as 1996).

It was billed on UK TV as a pilot episode, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

It was a fun, light-hearted family Sitcom - nothing too heavy, and I was surprised when a TV series was not forthcoming.

Robert Lindsay (of Citizen Smith fame) was excellent as usual.

If someone from ITV or BBC reads this, please consider a reprieve for this series.
