BEST DESCRIBED as MAY TO DECEMBER minus that programme’s calendar-themed-age-difference twist. A FINE ROMANCE featured real-life couple JACKANORY’s JUDI DENCH and MICHAEL “LOOKS LIKE A BED-WETTER” WILLIAMS playing a pair of nice, middle-class bachelor/ettes who gradually get it together. The epitome of nice sitcommery of the type that mums enjoy and insist on getting to watch via the tactic of describing it as “my programme” and “the only thing that I want to watch on telly all week”. About the most raucous thing that would happen in any given episode was the slightly grating theme tune that we reckon was sung by Dench herself. It had the smell of Sunday evenings and that was where it was shown, until the last year when it went out on Fridays instead – a terrible piece of scheduling that must have been done after Grade left LWT.
