Excellent!
14 July 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If you have never seen this before then I suggest you do! Alison Steadman is brilliant (and gorgeous...) and as for Robert Lyndsey. I often laugh at the thought that he was Wolfie Smith (Power to the People) all them years ago... I like his talking to the audience, taking us through his trials & tribulations and adventures. Like all plays it soon gets dated and this play is no exception. It's from 1994 and it is looking dated in some parts, CRT displays for the computers (Windows 95 perhaps...) and 'F' reg cars, look at his Volvo estate (for the non initiated 'F' reg was from 1988), I did not notice any mobile phones, perhaps you do when you watch it, but I guess you'll be laughing so much that you may miss them...
