| A terrible singing sitcom
The trailers to his comedy series were fantastic. The Nesbitts came across as lovable rogues.

Then the series started. Oh my. ITV obviously got something in the system when Dennis Potter signed up for them to do a few dramas. This was a musical comedy. It was nice of ITV to do something different but this was just misconceived.

The Nesbitts were a family of roving vagabonds and small time crooks. They travel from town to town in a pick-up type truck leaving mayhem behind. Hot on the heels are the boys in blue who are basically incompetent to be able to do anything.

The series was lame and a laughter free zone, the family unlikeable, the police were idiots and then everyone would suddenly start singing.

The songs had no irony and actually slowed the plot down to a halt. It was as if they failed to understand why the songs and music in the Dennis Potter serials worked.

The Nesbitts soon disappeared once and for all.
