This series sees Gwen Taylor's character widowed and wondering what to do with her husband's Debt Collection Agency. She decides to run the business herself, much to the chagrin of a rival, ruthless debt collector. Gwen employs a muscle-man, Carmichael, an illiterate hermit who rides around on a push-bike with a tape recording from Gwen of what he is to do. Together they manage to keep the business running, despite attempts from the rival collector to shut them down. Written by
I thoroughly enjoyed this under-rated work by the ever watchable Gwen Taylor. The reason I found it appealing was that the debt collection theme of the show reflected aspects of my job at the time in Credit Control! The relationship between Celia and Carmichael was most often an extremely amusing battle of wills, with Celia (usually) winning out. An early appearance for Gaynor Faye, and also features Philip Martin Brown, most recently seen in 'The Bill' (2005/2006). Such a shame it was confined to only one run, I'm sure with time and a little bit more money this could have continued for at least two more terms - if I could find this on DVD I would be a happy woman!
