British sitcom about the simple relationship between Mike (Michael Williams) and Laura (Dame Judi Dench), two fairly unlikely individuals who come together and form an unmarried union. Nearing forty, Laura appears perplexed most of the time. Mike sports a perpetual grin. They first meet during a party at the insistence of Laura's younger sister, Helen (Susan Penhaligon), and Mike's sweet, inept, and endearing character sparks something in the bossy, stubborn, big-softy Laura. They never quite hit it off, but there's something there that keeps them together.Written by
At a party given by her sister Helen (Susan Penhaligon) in the first episode, Laura (Dame Judi Dench) is reading the novel "Bouquet Of Barbed Wire", which had been dramatized for television five years earlier starring Penhaligon. The edition Laura is reading features Susan Penhaligon on the book's front cover and Dench makes a knowing reference to this by peering confusedly at the picture as if to indicate the face in it looks very familiar to her.

FANTASTIC! LOVE THE TRIALS AND ERRORS OF LOVE, JUST LIKE IN REAL LIFE!!
Whoever wrote "boring" must have been of the wrong age group. I'm 53 and I just loved all the movies (I bought the whole series) because I can relate to it. I loved the one liners! Michael Williams is spectacularly funny - a man without a clue!!
I got the whole set - I know that Amazon.com carries it - it's worth it!!! I also plan on getting the "Good Neighbors" complete set, "To The Manor Born" and "Vicar of Dibley". I LOVE English comedy!
