Reviews

Written by multi-award-winning playwright Jack Rosenthal one of Britain's best-loved and most consistently successful screenwriters - Sadie, It's Cold Outside is a wry and sympathetic comedy starring Rosemary Leach and Bernard Hepton as Sadie and Norman Potter, a world-weary middle-aged couple lamenting their lost dreams in an exhausting, increasingly hostile world.

When Sadie was a little girl, her one ambition was to be a housewife. Now, having spent the last 3 years cooking, cleaning and sleeping with her leg in an elastic bandage, her one ambition is to take all her clothes off in Tesco, stick a Green Shield Stamp on her navel and scream herself sick.

When Norman was a little boy, his ambition was to single-handedly thrash Australia in every Test Match or possibly win a Nobel Prize. Sadly, he's never had the time; he s been busy every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday watching television... and Sunday's his day of rest!

Kind of an odd program; a couple in their 40's having the longest midlife crisis. Which have the mind-set like they are in their late 60's. A house wife whining about being bored,a husband who ignores her,and the daily grind for her going to a laundry in town and being treated cruelly by the other housewives; all the while bored out of her skull(much like the viewer). And finally the husband losing his job and so she gets a job and becomes the bread winner and is happy now.He stays home and becomes a bum and that's all the shows about. A bit hard to stay awake for. The plot and the conversations monotone. It's like watching paint dry. It takes fortitude to finish. Not to be unfair to the cast,they are skilled actors. I believe the script is the biggest culprit. To sum it up I find it to be a nonsensical bore.

One of Jack Rosenthal's previous sitcom hits - 'The Lovers' - was about a young couple beginning a romantic relationship. 'Sadie, Its Cold Outside' focused on a middle-aged pair for whom romance has faded, and are perplexed by the modern world. Housewife 'Sadie' ( Rosemary Leach ), in particular, finds life one long round of shopping, cooking, and cleaning; her husband 'Norman' ( Bernard Hepton ) is content to stare at the telly as soon as he gets home from work. His sense of get-up-and-go long ago got-up-and-went. He even has to be reminded continually of who his daughter - Marilyn - is. The quality of the writing was, as you'd expect from Rosenthal, excellent, and the show benefited strongly from the fine performances of its leads. Then, as now, quite a few people sadly didn't get the joke, and only a single season was made. Alun Armstrong guested in one episode. I enjoyed the show back in 1975 and like it even more now that I'm the same age as the characters. This thoughtful, amusing show should be compulsive viewing for those who continually deride 70's sitcoms as a 'pebbledash of breast-gags and casual racism' ( namely, David Butcher of 'The Radio Times' ).
