More melodrama than comedy
Although rather strangely described as a comedy, this is mainly a melodrama, albeit with the occasional amusing incident. Brenda Blethyn plays a self absorbed woman who imagines she is helping people while actually causing chaos in their lives. Warren Clarke is her long suffering husband. There is a lot of shouting, and quite a lot of broken glass. The best character is the baby, who remains cheerful and smiling despite being surrounded by mostly disagreeable adults. The ending is very odd, with no resolution of any kind, possibly a second series was envisaged? If so, can't say I greatly regret that it never happened.
