What's Up Doc? (1992)
Although everybody remembers TISWAS and Multi-coloured Swap Shop, while all the other Saturday morning magazine programs have faded away, this one, "What's Up Doc?" was my favourite.
There was a healthy disrespect for the format. The presenters were rude to the guests, the children and each other, and the regular puppets (wolves, if I remember correctly) use to eat the children.
After Christmas in the second series the format suddenly changed and it wasn't nearly as good. If anyone has any information about what happened to cause this, I'd love to know.
Yvette Fielding has moved on to do 'Most Haunted', but what happened to every one else?
It Takes a Worried Man (1981)
I remember this series very fondly. I'm pretty sure it was written by Peter Tilbury as well as staring him although IMDb doesn't say who wrote the series, perhaps someone out there knows? As ITV have never repeated the (two?) series I can't tell! And by the way, what has happened to Peter Tilbury since 1993? The early Shelly episodes were written by him and Shelly must rate as one of the funniest British comedy series ever. It Takes a Worried Man doesn't sound like the subject of a comedy, being the story of a man recently divorced a worried about every thing from losing his hair to losing his job, but somehow it worked and it helped that the main character was actually likable and you wanted him to succeed. Come on ITV / Granada / whoever, how 'bout some repeats?
