| Not One Of Mary's Favourites
No, this wasn't a spin-off from 'Rising Damp'. This Miss Jones was a young mum from London, played by Paula Wilcox, bringing up her child alone after the father, a Fleet Street journalist, does a runner ( the swine! ). Richard Waring specialised in forgettable, middle-of-the-road domestic sitcoms, such as 'Not In Front Of The Children', and this was more of the same. Miss Jones was middle-class, had a trendy flat, wall-to-wall friends, and a sympathetic neighbour ( Christopher Beeny ) who carried a torch for her. It was twee, sickly, unreal. Yet, amazingly, it attracted the wrath of Mary Whitehouse! The Great Mary ( who'd also railed against that other sinful show 'Robin's Nest' ) thought that single parenthood was not a fit subject for comedy and publicly complained before it went on air. After only two seasons, the show ended and the world got back to normal. The theme tune by the late Roger Webb was identical to one he'd written for a 1974 soft-porn film called 'The Amorous Milkman' )!
