A comedy cast par excellence
14 January 2007 | by unclesteve69See all my reviews

I loved this comedy when i saw it in 1996-1997. Have never seen it repeated since anywhere on TV which is a shame as my VHS copy has almost worn out. So many sub plots which all seem to gel plus one-liners and visual jokes add to the appeal of this one off "dromedy". Fantastic setting as well ( around Fowey in Cornwall i seem to remember).Surely it will be shown again on TV somewhere or even made available to purchase commercially. No need to give any comments on the plot(s) as they have been admirably covered elsewhere.The casting was inspired with some top-notch actors coming together to keep it flowing. Its great,i loved it and cant wait to see it again, as you may have guessed!.
