    ITV repeated an episode of this last year and it was the stagiest, hammiest thing I’ve seen since the Young Ones was repeated in the mid-nineties.

    Duty Free was one of those sitcoms like Are You Being Served that never left the studio set and had no location filming. It seemed to work quite well as it was a good send up of a four star hotel in Spain and had a good cast. Think of Benidorm with a much smaller cast aimed at a middle class audience and this was Duty Free. Also it was a regular in the ratings top five and, unlike Benidorm, quit while it was still ahead.

    I bet Brian Rix was kicking himself that he didn’t have the idea of a door-slamming Spanish holiday adultery farce.
