Sadly this hugely amusing television series produced in Australia by Britain's Caroline Aherne was not given the promotion and recognition it deserved. Like all good comedy, characters were beautifully observed and touching. We thought it was consistently even funnier than The Royale Family, made by the BBC in Britain. Television channels should give it a second chance by running it again.
The astonishing thing about anything performed, written or produced by Aherne is that it is full of surprises. Who would have thought the repeated scenes in which Joe lovingly smooths down a piece of timber would be funny, but it most certainly was.
