Superb Cult Series!
on 15 February 2013
Superb series featuring 3 British comedy greats (John Inman, Josephine Tewson, & Peter Butterworth - also Viviene Johnson). The owner of a chip shop, Neville (John Inman) finds he has a half-sister he never knew about (Josephine Tewson - in real life Inman's cousin) and half ownership of a rock candy factory. He sells his chip shop to pay the banks 30,000 pounds so they won't forclose, only to find they have no sugar and owe the seller another thousand pounds, so they cannot make any rock candy to sell. Written by Vince Powell (writer/co-writer of many great ITV comedies), this show does not diappoint. If you love John Inman in anything, you will love this show. Add Peter Butterworth, Josephine Tewson, and Viviene Johnson and how could you resist this great sitcom. Sadly only 7 episodes were made -- but this is so often the case with UK sitcoms.
