If you've watched too many sitcoms, let's see how much you know...

First names:
Mrs & Mrs Lumsden (Sorry!)
Arkwright (Open All Hours)
Rigsby (Rising Damp)
Fletch (Porridge)
Boycie (Only Fools)

Last names:
Frs Ted, Dougal & Jack
Terry & June
George & Mildred
Margot & Gerry (Good Life)
Bob & Terry (Likely Lads)

First correct answer wins an all-expenses-paid trip to Maplin's for a week.

Pretty good - your tag is obviously well-earned. You win a long weekend, but the full week is still up for grabs.

Actually I couldn't remember Bob's surname myself when I posted the OP, but it's come back to me now. There's still one name I'm hoping someone will save my blushed about.

You are right - full marks and maybe even a couple extra. Enjoy your week.

Bob Ferris's middle name was Scarborough because his mum and dad used to go on holiday there.

Tough one!

The only one I'm certain of is Iolanthe - Reggie Perrin.

Gladstone rings a bell. Not Rodney Trotter is it? In which case Charlton might be Del?

Re Gladstone/Charlton - right series, wrong characters.

RP's middle name was Iolanthe because the local am-dram company were performing Iolanthe at the time. If he'd been born a year later he would have been called Reginald Pirates of Penzance Perrin!
