Ups and Downs of a Handyman

Aka “The Happy Housewives,” for some reason. Not a ‘Confessions’, or even an ‘Adventures’, this odd piece of bawdy flotsam which takes Barry ‘Reilly: Ace of Spies’ Stokes as its Askwith, and features Flumps narrator Gay ‘Wheels Turning Round’ Soper, Sue ‘Crossroads’ Lloyd, Valerie ‘String’ Leon, Bob “in every dodgy comedy film” Todd and Chic “off you go, you small boys” Murray. Consensus has it that, of the Askwith knock-offs, this is the poorest by an arse, although there’s much worse out there, we can assure you. Ahem. Anyhow, for the lowdown on this particular entry, we now defer to the internet in all its majesty – “Four spankings are administered by the bottom spanking village squire Bob Todd. All the spanking scenes are on screen and are all mild and fun”, “Female celebrity smoking review: Sue Lloyd takes a couple of long drags”, “Features shot of both BEA and British Airways liveried RMA class AEC Routemasters on Hammersmith flyover and also background shots of Alder Valley Dennis Loline IIIs and a Marshall bodied saloon in National Bus Company red.”
