Keep it in the Family

STALWART OF that post-Corrie “bathos but pathos” comedy slot, here were the Rush family whiling away the recession in posh Highgate with head of the household Dudley (ROBERT GILLESPIE) trying to earn money from drawing comic strips starring Barney the Bionic Bulldog while Muriel (PAULINE YATES) did the dishes and daughters Susan and Jacqui slept around. Or so it was implied, for this was Thamesland, and 8pm at that, so only a lewd, louche remark was allowed. Usually, for comic effect, in the presence of Dudley’s boss, the ever-dapper, GLYN HOUSTON.

    I need to know…was this the series where one of the daughters said she was joining a band called ‘Anarchy’, that actually turned out to be ‘Anna Key’, complete with ‘punk rockers’ who looked about as convincing as Cliff Richard’s neck?

    Anna Key was the name of one of their songs, not the band’s name.
