TV: R is for...


THE TIME had come for him to leave. All his family, and indeed his girlfriend, grieved. Not too dynamic early-evening sitcom ’bout a certain PC Penrose (PAUL GREENWOOD) who’s having problems at home and – tsk! – problems at work, too. Still, no-one could tell him how to run his life. And now he’s found a home without a wife! Bah! These things are sent to try us. Sharing (senior PC) Wilmot’s (TONY HAYGARTH) far-from-ideal home, to be precise. “Gentle humour” resulted, as you’d expected from the perspicacious pen of ROY CLARKE.

    Gentle but funny at the time. The highlight was PC Wilmot’s unsavoury habit of adjusting his tackle in public.

    Was it Wildtrack that had a viewer write in and ask if anyone had spotted the word “Rosy” on the side of a cuttlefish, wondering if the creatures communicated with the patterns on their bodies? I immediately thought of this sitcom when I heard that. And now it’s about the only thing I remember about the programme.
