After the death of her husband, Henry, Sarah has been left pretty well provided for.
Unfortunately, she has also been left with an exacting mother, Eleanor, who is living downstairs, and an adolescent daughter, Clare, who lives upstairs and longs for independence - but only if mother is there to clear up the mess.
Our Review: One of the few ITV comedies of the late 1980s that kept the viewer amused, and, in the process, the star managed to shake off her image as Basil Fawlty's tyrannical wife at long last.
