Norman Rodway and Barbara Murray are the splendid heads of the household in this story of an acting dynasty, set in the glittering world of the West End theatre in the late twenties and early thirties as the novelty of talking pictures encroaches upon their theatrical world. The easy drama and lightly comic scripts add up to a series of great charm - a word that can be too rarely applied to any TV series. With beautiful sets and costumes and stories that both gently send up and celebrate that lost era, I can thoroughly recommend this set of discs.
I recall that ITV were disappointed with the viewing figures for this first series and relegated the broadcasting of the second series to a late night slot in the schedules. The chances of this second series being released on disc are probably slim.
