Storyline

Deputy Mayor Laura Fitzgerald is informed that the town of Flatby on the coast of England has never actually been conquered. The town wasn't even in the Domesday Book as the area was flooded when the King's survey came to visit. Also, there has never been any official incorporation of Flatby into any country. It follows that Flatby was never officially annexed into the United Kingdom. Taking advantage of the situation, Laura rallies the townsfolk to declare Flatby an independent state, much to the displeasure of the Government in London.

Misfired promise
9 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The series concept seems derived from 1949's "Passport to Pimlico", starring classic comedians Stanley Holloway and Margaret Rutherford. In that film, documents unearthed by the Blitz reveal the London borough to be part of a French duchy and hence, exempt from post-war rationing. "Passport" was a first-rate social/political commentary which this series hinted at emulating (EEC-related) but never successfully achieved. The writers missed their opportunity. While the series leads (Gwen Taylor, Richard Hope) were solid, the supporting characters (Rudolph Walker, the notable exception) were usually unbelievable and often less than funny. Series cancellation, short of the sea reclaiming Flatby, was merciful for all concerned.
