Product Description

All six episodes of the 1991 sitcom set in Yorkshire. Despite coming from different ends of the political and social spectrum, Julia Merrygrove (Patricia Hodge) - an attractive, labour-voting divorcee with a position on the local council - develops an unlikely relationship with local biscuit factory owner George Rudge (Dennis Quilley). Unlike the kind-hearted Julia, George is a plain speaking, old-school chauvinist with no time for political correctness. However, both characters do share something: odd parents, in George's sex-mad father, and Julia's snooker-obsessed mother.

5.0 out of 5 stars They could be YOUR family 24 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase
Having not seen this before didn't quite know what I'd be watching! Well worth it and My wife who wasn't that happy about Me getting it thinks it's very good viewing. In any normal boy meets girl show it's all lust and let's get happy! Both the main people in the show being older and having seen something of life take a little longer , both having family around You can guess it doesn't run smooth. Buy it, You won't find it dull.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rich Tea Indeed 3 May 2010
This is yet another great series from the pen of David Nobbs. If you enjoyed "A Bit of a Do" and "The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin," then you'll enjoy this series. Again, a humourous look at the obstacles facing two unlike characters as they try to forge a relationship under trying circumstances. Fully loaded with witty reparte and play on words and too many coincidental incidents. A fine cast with special kudos to Patricia Hodge and the special Jean Alexander.
