Agony

ANNA RAEBURN-INSPIRED sitcommery starring MAUREEN LIPMAN as usual playing herself, i.e. externally strong, confident woman but internally a babbling mess. The likes of SIMON WILLIAMS, DIANA WESTON and BILL NIGHY showed up as punchlines to Mo’s many and varied (in quality) gags. Obligatory LWT gay characters looked in. Obligatory radio DJ provided shoulder to cry on. Obligatory revival followed on BBC1 in 1995, which was, indeed, agony again.

    There’s a line in the theme song which sounds like Lyndsey De Paul (or whoever landed the job of recording it) is singing ‘Sometimes I get to fuck me brain.’ Just listened again on YouTube and I’m still not convinced she isn’t.
