I agree that this series was not given a fair crack of the whip. Why is it that the TV companies are so keen to dump programmes when they are not a huge instant success!? The BBC treated another excellent comedy drama, Neil Pearson's "Trevor's World of Sport" in a similar fashion. John Thomson and Joe Absolom were excellent (as usual) in this. John's portrayal of a man returning to his home town expecting to be treated as the 'prodigal son' was perfectly pitched as was Joe's nicely understated performance as the real brains behind the duo. He let Stan take the credit when in fact he usually saved the day! It reminded me of Hong Kong Fuey in a way! I thoroughly enjoyed it but had to search hard for most of the episodes in the late night schedules. I look forward to seeing the underused John Thomson in further comedy dramas in the near future.
