Love On A Branch Line

BBC One comedy drama about a civil servant. 4 episodes (1 series) in 1994. Stars Michael Maloney, Leslie Phillips, Maria Aitken, Graham Crowden and others.


Love On A Branch Line received excellent reviews and plans were made for a second series. Adapter David Nobbs concocted an entirely original story in which Jasper returned to the hall to act as a moral guardian for Lord Flamborough's daughters, but then-BBC boss Alan Yentob took a dislike to the series and cancelled it.
