Unjustly forgotten comedy of the 70's which I remember being a big hit at the time. With the theme written and sung by The excellent Peter Skellern, this was an update by the original scriptwriters of the 1960's film where Billy was portrayed by Tom Courtney to the 1970's where the Billy character is still fantasising about a possibly other more exciting existence. Daydreaming his way through his day job working at an undertakers whilst stringing along his girlfriend. Jeff Rawle is ably supported by George A Cooper in full-on rant mode most of the time, Colin Jeavons and May Warden as the dotty grandmar who provides may unexpected (and quite blue) laughs. A welcome dvd release by Network several years ago should have gained it a few new fans.
