Holding out for a hero
15 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was a good sitcom that had good writing and a strong cast. The plots though silly were entertaining and unlike some modern sitcoms did not get bogged down by sentiment.

The public seemed to like it to and it was a regular fixture in the Friday night schedules for many years. For a British sitcom to reach five series' is a pretty big achievement so credit should be awarded.

Then all of a sudden things changed. The main actor left - not sure of the reason but one episode he was there and the next... gone. This should have been the end of the series because the lead guy was really the one everyone tuned in for, it was his show.

However the BBC knew they had a hit on their hands and were determined to milk it for all it was worth so tried to tweak the format. In came James Dreyfus playing the lead role with only a really silly story to back it up (something about a body swap.

The public didn't like it, the critics jumped onto the show like a vulture and before you know it the show is being moved around the schedules like crazy so that the BBC can burn off all the remaining episodes. Unsurprisingly it was axed soon after.

The BBC's inability to let the show die when the lead actor left proved to be the downfall of a good comedy.
