BBC comedy series parodying the works of Charles Dickens and heavily influenced by a similar, long-running radio series. A respectable shopkeeper, Jedrington Secret-Past, (unsurprisingly) discovers that he has a secret past.
For me the first seen episode was the first one of the second series, after which I just missed the "guys", so I tried watching the first series too. It is one of those friendly sitcoms with moments of absurd and good humor. Very pleasing. And also, for the category of sitcoms with old people, it is refreshingly clear-spoken, I can hear and get every joke. They are somewhere in the Grumpy Old Men (BBC series) area. Not at all lacks the jokes as another comment suggested. Keep it up, old guys!Roger Lloyd Pack is Owen from The Vicar of Dibley and this made me watch in the first place. Not at all Peep Show-y (which I also like, but which is a whole other dish), probably more like "Last of the Summer Wine", out of which I saw a few episodes. I had good laughs with this one, the only reason I see for others not liking it would be that they have a different sense of humor or they were fooled by the apparently slow pace of the action. But the comedy is not a speed-related matter.
