Fabulous
27 September 2018 | by andiroids-1See all my reviews

This was a beautifully written and acted series. This gentle comedy is very much a lost classic and there are no other similar style series I can think of to compare it. It did lose a little of its charm in series 2 due to both female leads being replaced with lesser talented actresses but it was still a joy to watch George Cole and Richard Pearson as 2 very different but lovable friends. If you get a chance to see it, I can not recommend it highly enough.
