TV: I is for...

Irish RM, The

PETER BOWLES, playing himself, retires to the rural west coast of Ireland somewhere in the 1890s to see out his days doing a bit of low-key boundering and cheating. Unfortunately his duties as a local magistrate turn out to involve settling temper tantrums between foaming local farmers, treacherous vicars and fire-breathing buxom matriarchs, leaving precious little time for caddish chicanery. BRYAN MURRAY was our hero’s wily landlord, married to BERYL REID for extra shouty shenanigan potential.

    Grandad worked on this, in Ireland. Bowles is a nice bloke apparently.

    And Reid was his mother not his wife, but she was still Mrs. Yeats.
