Settle back and enjoy this
on 10 September 2015
Surprised at the time of writing here in 2015 to find no other Reviews as this was a sweet little British production (2007-09) that went to 3 series, 18 episodes and probably boosted tourism to the county of Norfolk where the fictional Market Shipborough was set (real location: Swaffham). Stephen Fry on wonderful form as a small town solicitor Peter Kingdom willing to bat for the underdogs, assisted by extraordinarily quirky Norris as his slightly unhinged half sister; also Imrie his receptionist who is clearly secretly in love with him, and Law as his lovely also quirky auntie. Other big names find parts: Richard Wilson, John Thomson, Robert Bathurst, the late Lynsey de Paul and Richard Briers, Jack Dee and Rory Bremner.
l never felt quite sure the actor playing his associate Lyle totally fitted in but his character took the many knocks, with grace and always ended up wet.
Settle back and enjoy. To me the litmus test on any production is if you can re-watch it multiple times and still find it delightful.
