| Even Richard Briers didn't like it!!
I too have always remembered this series, but can only recall the details of one of the episodes - where Ralph takes Brian to what he describes as a Spanish "gut" restaurant. In other words authentic rather than tourist-made. Turns out it is someone's house!! I have often wondered why it was never repeated, but one answer may lie in the following.......... Two or three years ago Richard Briers was being interviewed on Radio 5 Live and listeners were asked to phone in with questions. I asked about this programme and what had happened to it. Richard Briers said that, although it was nice of someone to remember it, it wasn't one that he cared to recall. I think he actually described it as a failure. I have often wondered whether part of Martin Byce's character (Ever Decreasing Circles) was drawn from Ralph Tanner.
