The complete 27 episodes of the '80s comedy series. John Thaw is Henry Willows, a middle-aged man in middle-management who has been divorced from his wife for seven years and is perfectly happy with the arrangement. Apart from his prudish and pernickety daily cleaner, Enid (Elizabeth Bennett), he's alone - and revels in his hard-won solitude. However, Henry's serenity is shattered when, out of the blue, his eldest child, Matthew (Reece Dinsdale), arrives on his doorstep. It seems that Matthew is disenchanted with life at home because of his mum's new boyfriend, and he wants to stay with his dad - for good. Episodes comprise: 'A New Life', 'All You Need Is Love' 'Suspect', 'Dating Henry', 'The Way We Were', 'Protest', 'Plastic Dreamworld', 'Open House', 'Acting Out', 'The Test', 'Any Questions', 'Julie', 'Human Interest', 'Success Story', 'High Spirits', 'The Real Thing', 'Crimewatch', 'Getting On', 'Paper Chase' 'Christmas Special-Family Ties', 'Bridge Of Sighs', 'Frontrunner', 'The Boyfriend', 'Thought For The Day', 'Return To Clagthorpe', 'High Noon' and 'Leaving'.

I remember watching this when I was a child and finding the programme funny and It still makes me laugh now.
The characters are very well written and the acting from Reece Dinsdale and the much missed John Thaw is brilliant.
I also like Rebecca Lacy performance as Julie the daughter although she is in only a number of episodes and the two ladies who play the housekeepers are very good.
Well worth the money as lots of hours of viewing the Christmas Special is a very good extended episode also
its a trip down memory lane, to the time when life seemed so simple and people were content just to get on with being happy.
the humour is realistic and layed back but also has many levels to it which makes this an exelent family comedy.
One of the beauties of the Freeview box, Sky tv and the plethora of television stations is that they have to fill the time with something. There are only so many coooking, weight loss and reality televisions programmes they can show so they reshow the old comeides.
I have been lucky enough to pick up most of the episodes on ITV 3. I loved rising Damp by Eric Chapell and you can never tire of rewatching that as every episode is good. Home to Roost is not quite in the leagure of Rising Damp but it is very good indeed. I could not take to Only when I Laugh but Home to Roost I can watch any time
It is gentle domestic comedy of a middle aged divorced father living on his own when his 17 year old son leaves his mother and decides to come to live with him.
I suppose at the theme of divorced parents was not really depicted on television and certainly not in comedies.
Henry Willows played by John Thaw has a calm settled life and it is turned upside down by a son he has not seen since he was very young. All the bitterness of the divorce returns but it is very funny as he comes to terms with this grown up son.
Some of the best episodes involves the interplay between Henry and his cleaner who is filrtatous but he seems not to notice and her dsigust at the antics of the son . Also the son Mathew tries to engineer a reconciliation between Henry and his divorced wife Sheila Hancock . They even end up sleepeing together then realise it has all be engineered by the son.
There are shades of Dear John but the differrence is that Henry Willows is happy with his life and has no intention of finding another women to fill the hoe in his life. He clailms he was happy in his little world until his son turns up.
All in all an very good comedy and is not in the first rank of British comedies of the time but is an excellent runner up
