Bonjour La Classe
Sitcom focussing on Laurence Didcott (Nigel Planer) in his new role as French teacher at the fee-paying and almost anarchic Mansion House school
Nigel Planer plays Laurence Didcott, new French teacher at London's Mansion House public school. Although undoubtedly and unfalteringly well-intentioned, he is actually rather feckless, and somewhat of a one-man disaster area. His constant unquestioning drive for change and improvement only serves to alienate him somewhat from the other teachers, who have long been resigned to a repetitive daily existence of educational mediocrity!
Our Review: Packed with laughs, Bonjour La Classe is a much forgotten sitcom, and sadly so. Nigel Planer makes a superbly clueless French teacher, and an excellent supporting cast kept the show on its toes.
