WAS THERE NO WAY to keep the lesser talented Oddie off the screen in the mid-80s? No. Here he was again, writing, starring and musically-embellishing (of course) in kids sitcom depicting goings-on at Jolly Theatre Stage School. Which (of course) is far from jolly. Especially when Bill – William Worthington, 43-year-old bank manager – turns up to enrol. Much pratfalling and caterwauling ensues. And that’s just from Bill. Other characters included Polly Jolly and Wayne Layne. Couldn’t he be bothered to have thought up different sounding ones?
