Really lovely feel good telly
12 June 2017 | by peter-99128See all my reviews

We bought the box set for this and City Lights after catching a couple of episodes on re-runs and loved it!!

Despite Howard and Colin falling out repeatedly and the various mishaps that befall them, you know everything will be OK in the end so it makes for hilarious and carefree viewing.
