Either we are discussing different programmes, or our ideas of sketches are very different.

Fairly sure they cut away to sketches in the show, I think Jo Kendall is in one, playing a secret assination.

EDIT: Just seen an episode where the characters run a hotel and it has no sketches. Maybe only the earlier series had the sketches?

How on earth did I completely miss Believe Nothing?

And Timothy West is always worth a watch.

I attended the studio recording of that in Teddington. I recall it being OK, but nothing hugely funny.

There was only one series. You must be confusing it with something else.

His Lordship Entertains was a sitcom featuring Lord Rustless from his Hark at Barker series. A character Barker seemed fond of. He did do a sketch show on radio called Lines from my Grandfathers forehead. Barker was also in Clarence for one series before retiring. David Jason was also in His Lordship and also in A Sharp Intake of Breath and The Secret Life of Edgar Briggs and The Bodyguard
