| Fun series -- and out on DVD now, by the way
I rented the first two episodes from Netflix and was delighted to see them again after 25 years. As others have said, the chemistry between Bob Hoskins (Arnie Cole) and Frances de la Tour (Maud) really powers the show -- some of the subplots are a tad tedious. This was the first thing I ever saw Hoskins in and I've been a fan ever since. De la Tour hasn't been all that visible over the years, though she was also great in the comedy series Rising Damp (another one worth seeing again) and she had a small role in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (where she played the giant visiting French teacher).

Also memorable are Fraser Cains as Llewelyn, Arnie's long-suffering Welsh film projectionist, and Peggy Ann Wood as Maud's feisty Nanny.
