When Londoner Thomas Gynn escapes from his dodgy associations in the capital for a new life up north, he literally runs in to feisty Yorkshire lass (and damsel-in-distress) Sally Hardcastle on the A1 - getting her broken down car back on the road. Sally runs a narrowboat business in Leeds, and it soon seems that this unlikely couple will be exploring new and uncharted waters together.Written by

In many episodes of Season 4, the job "continuity" is spelled "continunity". This may be an in-joke, given that attention to detail and noticing small errors is one of the tasks of the continuity person. See more »
Get the feeling Dennis Waterman was hoping for another Minder!
Stay Lucky hasn't got the charm and wit of the Minder series with Dennis Waterman and George Cole, but it is entertaining at a certain level and the spunky Jan Francis is a great foil for Waterman and an asset to an otherwise mediocre series.
Waterman plays Thomas Gyn, a bit of a lad on the run up north to escape some misdemeanours committed in London. He happens upon Sally Hardcastle,played by Jan Francis, her car broken down on the motor way, and manages to get her back on the road again and cadge a lift in the direction of Leeds. After a bit of hi-jinx and misunderstandings between the two, they form anattraction for each other and Thomas becomes caught up in Sally'scomplicated life, involving a late unfaithful husband, a stolen painting and intimidation from sources interested in the painting's recovery.
Naturally Waterman and Francis hold this shaky plot together with their quarrelling and banter, and by the end of the first series you can't help but hope that something more permanent and substantial comes from their relationship. 7/10
