Love it!!!
25 April 2014 | by (Sydney Australia) – See all my reviews

I loved this sitcom very much. The characters where so natural and believable. It was so lovely to watch a comedy and be so thoroughly entertained and there was always a message for me to accept the way things were and be grateful for friendship and family even if at times they could drive you around the bend. In its way it was heartwarming and uplifting. Such gentle comedy. They are fine actors and actresses. My only regret is that it is not on DVD or apparently not on u tube. If anyone can put this on U tube I for one would be most grateful. Minnie Drivers son (who's names I cannot remember as it was too long ago) was alway very natural and a good little actor. I wonder if he went on to peruse a acting career? Harry the dear friend who's gentle nature helped George Coles character to calm down a little, but also made him a little frustrated as he was too much the gentleman and a bit of a "old woman", but in saying that he also gave him a new lease of life and a reason to live.
