Shelley - The Complete Fifth Series

Shelley - The Complete Fifth Series

James Shelley is trying to show willing. Exasperated by his constant procrastination, wife Fran has now given him his marching orders, and there are even the rumblings of divorce proceedings. So Shelley becomes something of a regular at the 'Easy Job' agency in an effort to find tolerable work and win back Fran's respect - his travails taking him from a hard day's slog in the City to the joys of the 'Dust-Bowl' Burger Bar...

A long-running success for ITV - lasting for ten series over fourteen years - Shelley featured a masterful performance by Hywel Bennett as the bone-idle graduate-philosopher cast adrift on a sea of unemployment. This set contains the complete Series 5, originally screened in 1982 and also starring Belinda Sinclair as Fran, Warren Clarke as Shelley's friend and giver of temporary refuge, Paul, and Garfield Morgan as ever-present hall porter Desmond.
