The Upper Hand - The Complete Sixth Series

When high-flying executive Caroline Wheatley advertised for a live-in home help, Charlie Burrows, a footballer with a career curtailed by injury, was the last person she expected to find applying for the job at her luxurious country home. But Laura, Caroline's alluring, vivacious mother, has always appreciated the presence of a good-looking, resourceful young man, and Charlie, who is also bringing up his daughter alone, meets with the approval of Caroline's young son Tom. And before too long Caroline finds that despite the unconventional circumstances and a few painfully awkward moments, romance blossoms...

This engaging sitcom stars Joe McGann as Charlie and Diana Weston as Caroline, with Avengers siren Honor Blackman as Laura and future Rock & Chips star Kellie Bright as Charlie's streetwise daughter, Joanna. The Upper Hand, based on scripts for the hugely popular US series Who's The Boss?, was a major success for Central and ran for seven series.

This double-disc set includes the complete 6th series, also featuring guest appearances by Bob Monkhouse, Dale Winton, Anthony Newley and Frank Thornton, as well as an hour-long 'wedding day' special.
