This review is from: Outside Edge : The Complete First Series [DVD] (DVD)
This bittersweet light hearted ITV sitcom based around the members of Brent Park Cricket Club. The village cricket team brings together a fine cast featuring Robert Daws aka Roger Dervish as the pompous captain and long suffering wife, Brenda Blethyn aka Miriam with the bright, bohemian pair Josie Lawrence aka Maggie and Timothy Spall aka Kevin Costello. A close friendship blossoms between the two women, and under Maggie's outgoing influence, Mim discovers an independent streak that's been stifled too long by Roger and the shock waves are set to reverberate around cosy suburbia and to set the net curtains twitching.
This sitcom was based on Richard Harris's stage play, which had previously been televised in 1982 (with Paul Eddington as Roger, Prunella Scales as Miriam, Jonathan Lynn as Kevin and Maureen Lipman as Maggie).
