The long-awaited second series of Ever Decreasing Circles, which contains seven episodes of this classic comedy.
Martin is still the only person in the close who does not think that his next-door-neighbour, Paul, is wonderful, and he fights a valiant but losing battle to try to convert the others to his way of thinking!
There is something very touching about Martin - he could come across as a bumptious, interfering busybody, but he is a kind man at heart, and his problems with Paul arise because he feels inferior.
In the first episode, Martin invites an old lady to tea, but turns up with a Dormobile full of them! Howard and Hilda pitch in to help prepare tea and entertain the visitors, but needless to say, it is Paul who is the biggest hit, providing them with a sing song and a free hairdo!
In other episodes, we see Martin desperately trying to win the snooker tournament, trying to find ways of not picking Paul for the cricket team, and dealing with Paul's Christmas house-guests who end up sleeping in Martin's house. There is an hilarious episode where a psychiatrist takes a professional interest in Martin - who thinks that Ann has the problem! Perhaps the biggest surprise in the series, though, is that it is Martin who comes up with the ideal solution when Ann needs more than housework to inspire her!
