Don’t Wait Up

COMFORTABLE-AS-SLIPPERS UBER-SWISH (summed up by classy brass-led theme) sitcom charting fortunes of divorced doctors TONY BRITTON and NIGEL HAVERS, father and son, forced to live together to say pennies and, gasp, do the washing up. GEORGE “PIGEON STREET” LAYTON was on script duties, and this gets a clean bill of health from us, despite what Radio Times (“dismal, little remembered”) said the other week.

    The one I do remember and is the funniest of a mixed bunch of episodes is the one where Tony Britton buys himself a Rolls Royce, which he is completely paranoid about and gets into a few scrapes before being done for speeding at the end. Also Nigel Havers, who played his son, is a bit of a lefty in this, a departure for the normally uber Tory Havers, whose father was the attorney general, as he loved to remind people. Great theme tune as well.

    Not outstanding, but fairly good fun to watch.

    The titles were a photo album from what I remember.
