However, they later backtracked their decision and decided to axe the show as the fourth series was beginning production, allegedly down to the controversial new BBC controller Jay Hunt not liking the show.

I think I like this strictly for nolstagic reasons but at the time I do remember liking it then too. I found the characters and scenarios really funny like when the father son were stranded in fancy dress clothes on the streets and an old lady burglar attacking the fathers gormless builder assistant. The acting was good except Dani Harmer who plays the daughter who was really miscast in this. Let's face it, apart from Tracey Beaker, she can't do anything else. I'd say this was very good especially compared to the rubbish comedy shows now.
