Brilliant comedy series with some great performances
12 March 2007 | by ajlbruceSee all my reviews

As a series this is vastly under sung. Lumley is good but the support she gets from Nadine Gardner and John Bowe is fantastic. Richard Vernon is classic as Sir Horace and John Gaddas a good further support. Each episode has enough variety to be good stories in their own right and the support cast as visitors are excellent in their performances. It is sad that this series gets very little acclaim and even only minimal entries about it. I eventually found a copy of the series via a Canadian source. I strongly recommend this to anyone with a sense of humour who enjoys Joanna Lumley and the sort of humour which she can perform at her best.
