Would you like some tea? A very enjoyable adventure
30 December 2019 | by christopherbarton26See all my reviews

In the UK this show was shown on Sunday teatime (and you know how we like our tea). It was a surprise as usually that spot tended to to be filled with quality BBC classic dramas. Anyhoo, it was refreshing to see such a show and of such quality. It was hardly art but it was entertaining. Well written, well directed and performed by a legendary cast, and actors who were to be very accomplished.

I was very disappointed when it was cancelled, but not as much as my mum!!
