Take a note, this show's hysterical!
3 December 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The show only lasted a few episodes but John Inman (a man deserving of his own British honor where it is an M.B.E.,O.B.E, C.B.E, or even Knighthood) is worth it playing the role of Mr. Jones, a secretary to an professional executive woman played by Rula Lenska. One of the joys is Miriam Margolyes O.B.E. in the role as Maria, the Italian housekeeper. She is wonderful in this role. The theme song is quite catchy. John Inman has been out long before Ian McKellen and he is quite well known for the obvious reasons. He is a comedic genius. After watching for years on Are You Being Served?, he chews the scenery easily. It is time for John Inman to get something for his contributions to entertainment over the decades. People who have done less have gotten something so please award John Inman. One queen surely deserves to meet Queen Elizabeth II. John Inman M.B.E. sounds great doesn't it?
