Highly Underrated
This doesn't mean that it's a 'must' for everyone. But it means that it's a rare gem for fans of British comedy.

No masterpiece, surely, but still a little, solid message of comedy from the more subtle sides of mirth. Ian McShane and Sandi Toksvig add shine to a wonderful, but nonetheless fairly routine script. Routine for British TV, that is. There is a certain twist to things which only the Brits can manage. It's nothing to write home about, when you're set on universal values of entertainment, but it's all but bloody genius when you're in love with the 'British Way' of seeing things. Relish the more subtle ways of comedy. Relish 'The Big One'.
