TV: C is for...


OLD SCHOOL britcom with ROY KINNEAR, COLIN WELLAND, KEN JONES and that bloke who always played a t’ick Oirishman (DERMOT KELLY) as construction workers who were…well, crap. Chas and Dave went electro for the theme: “If a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing wrong/With a nail too short, and a screw too long.” Inevitably, something collapsed in every episode.

    Irishman was played by David Kelly not Dermot.

    I also believe the theme tune was sung by Joe Brown of The Bruvvers fame, not Chas and Dave

    That was a short lived but great britcom, I thought, when I got a chance to see the episodes I’d found of it. Did the main guy, curly long hair, tall with a ‘stash (helluva singer, too) star in any other Britcoms?
