4.0 out of 5 stars Synopsis By UKdvdsonline, 3 Dec 2010
This review is from: Bowler: The Complete Series (DVD)
Bowler was a Fenn Street Gang spin-off which, although written after both Please Sir! and The Fenn Street Gang, chronicled the earlier adventures of former Fenn Street pupil Craven's shady boss, Stanley Bowler - the Del Boy of his generation.

George Baker (The Ruth Rendell Mysteries) stars as the East End villain with social aspirations, while the series was once again penned by veteran sitcom writers John Esmonde and Bob Larbey. Soap legends Wendy Richard and Johnny Briggs are among the guest stars appearing in this wryly humorous look at one man's attempts to breach the barriers of the English class system.

Stanley Bowler has a finger in every profitable pie, and his money can buy everything but the thing he wants most: class. His unstoppable ambition to move in higher social circles sees him embarking on a series of ill-fated schemes - including opening his very own gentlemen's club, conspicuously embracing high culture, and even trying to set himself up as a laird. Sadly, while Bowler stumbles from one faux pas to another, the doors of Society remain very firmly closed...

Episodes - The Ides Of March / Members Only / Come Round Any Old Time / They Never Come Back / Faithfully Yours / On the Fiddle / Monarch Of The Glen / Thou Shalt Not Grass / Sweet And Sour Charity / RIP / The Family Tree / Bowler's Analysis / Without Let Or Hindrence

This review is from: Bowler: The Complete Series (DVD)
Very much in the line of Minder which I think came several years later. Gives a great picture of how versatile George Baker was as an actor - maybe never a major start but always dependable.
