Dead Ernest

POST-FAWLTY TOWERS runaround for ANDREW SACHS as a bloke (called Ernest, handily) who gets killed by a champagne cork after winning the pools, goes to heaven and spends the rest of the series trying to get back. Time ticks by in the company of Ethel from EastEnders and Percy from Corrie.

    I seem to remember Heaven in this series looking a lot like a school.

    Hmm. It was on ITV at 8pm on a Monday night as I recall, lasted one series. I seem to remember that it portrayed heaven as a place full of admin, red tape, procedure etc. Andrew Sachs was still coasting on his Fawlty Towers success but this was a bit meh. I remember him constantly sparring with a young female angel official with blonde bair and glasses and poss a Liverpool accent.
