Simon throws a dinner party for the Smallbridges where inevitably Lyn and David try to keep the peace. After the meal the fathers play cards but Oliver is offended when Simon accuses him of cheating ...
The shop exteriors were actually two restaurants next door to each other , one Indian and one Greek, in the village of Claygate, Surrey. To accommodate the series location filming both restaurants closed for a two week summer holiday at the same time once a year and the Thames television art department would temporarily turn the shop fronts into the neighbouring antique dealers seen in the show.

Ignore the review as per above....Sit back and enjoy to old actors showing how easy this sort of comedy comes to them...Perfect for lunchtime viewing with some good moments..OK it is not perfect but still no way near awful as some would have u think. The two leads play rival shop owners...but of course are close friends....Compared to recent "comedies" on the main channells this should be considered a masterpiece.... Sit back and enjoy.
Incidentally is is sad that you don't see more of the show's made in the 80's..A golden age for TV viewing...Fingers crossed ITV2,3 & 4 will sort this out..Wouldn't it be great to see The Equaliser,Street Hawk and such like again.
