Lots of laughs.
Number 33 Lobelia Avenue, the home of Terry, his mum and their lodger Hugh. Each episode sees the pair involved in some sort of scheme or escapade.
It's a very funny series, I hadn't seen a single episode, but stumbled on it by accident, I've binge watched most of it, I found it very original, funny, and way ahead of its time. I wonder how many other shows and sketches were inspired by this, it is so well written, Chapman did a great job.
The main trio are a scream, but so often the laughs come from the neighbours, The Crispins and Wormalds are hilarious, Mollie Sugden and Patricia Hayes are a scream, such comedy talents.
Of the episodes I saw, my favourite had to be A Fete worse than Death, with Joan Hickson and Patsy Smart, incredibly funny.
How sad that so much of it is missing, a date that affected many shows of the time, including Doctor Who, let's hope some are found in the future, a few have surfaced over the years.
Very funny, 8/10.
