Our Review: Charmingly middle-class, this Wendy Craig comedy made an underwhelming although promising start. The premise was a good one, but execution lacked and the first series failed to have any real 'life' or 'spark'. However, when scripting duties were spread out between a number of writing teams for the second run, the show's quality greatly improved, and ensured its life for a further 2 series. Inspired by Craig's long running BBC sitcom Not In Front Of The Children, it proved to be every bit as popular as its predecessor, totalling 27 episodes over four series.
