A series of self contained TV films starring performers from London's "Comic Strip" comedy club and their friends. Noted for a high sense of parody of previous films, literature, and generally everyone in sight.
Set in the baby's perspective of the first years of its life, almost an instructional video for baby's explaining how to be the worst infant you can be and why. Brilliant series that still takes me back today.
The murder of a female GP in a rural playground in front of numerous witnesses draws a group of detectives into an ever-darkening mystery that takes them across Europe, aided by mysterious notes sent by the "Ghost Detective".
Goodness me, only two reviews for this awesome slice of British family life. Where's the justice?
Anyway, this six-part comedy drama is a well assembled 'feel good' story about several generations of the Kinsay family as seen through the eyes of good-natured and well-meaning George. (Rik Mayal.) The series opens and closes with a group family photo and what happens in-between both shots is a beautiful adventure of Britsh family life.
You know it's not to be taken too seriously when the local council election has Norman Stanley Fletcher as a candidate!
There's a lot of top-flight British acting talent on display, too. Francis Matthews plays an elderly love interest for the murdering granny. He was in the excellent Paul Temple (1970ish) and was the voice of Captain Scarlet. Nice extended cameos by Roy Hudd and David Mitchell. Lots of other recognizable names, to boot.
But what elevates this from just good to simply awesome is the beautiful and underplayed performance of Rik Mayal. Just a joy to watch.
