A Tale Of Two ( Perhaps Three ) Binghams!
4 November 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Paul wants a top job at St. Swithins, but needs Bingham's recommendation. Bingham, alas, doesn't think Paul is up to it, and says so. Bingham's twin brother Lionel turns up, so Duncan gets him to impersonate Lawrence and make it appear as though he has changed his mind. Paul gets the job, much to Lawrence's horror. Then the two Binghams finally meet...

'Dad's Army' later did a similar plot, entitled 'My Brother & I'. A tour de force from Richard O'Sullivan, called on not only to play Lawrence Bingham, but also his trendier, funnier, alcohol-loving older brother, and, before the end credits roll, another brother by the name of Leonard, who looks an awful lot like 'Robin Tripp' from 'Man About The House'. George Layton is also good here, as his confusion over Bingham's seemingly erratic behaviour mounts. Funniest moment - Lawrence confronting Lionel, and letting fly with a volley of invective, including: "Nanny always loved you best!"
