Storyline

Ivan Fox, a Londoner and non-practising Jew, is sent by his boss to Northern Ireland to run the Belfast branch of Drummond's Tobacco Co. Here he is confronted with age-old Catholic and Protestant attitudes. As a self-proclaimed Atheist, Ivan cannot relate and is dismayed when everyone attempts to categorize him by religion. Ivan is sought after by George Nathan,"The Jew-finder General", who is "singlehandedly trying to repopulate the Jewish community in Belfast." George's family is a good, solid Jewish one with one exception; his daughter is dating a Catholic ex-convict. On the work-front, Ivan must decide if he will hire some Catholics at the all-Protestant Drummond's. This is met by opposition from his Works Manager, Charlie Adamson...

There's a reason this has never been repeated.
27 June 2020 | by glennwalsh44See all my reviews

There's an old Belfast joke involving a Hindu looking for a job which I won't repeat, but basically this woeful series is that joke expanded and with Jews replacing Hindus. It's hard to believe it was made to be honest it is so bad. I'm only giving it three stars because people I know including my own brother turned up in the series as extras. "Foreign Bodies" from the BBC was much better and deserves a repeat showing sometimesometime, this is best forgotten.
