RICHARD “BEANS! Beans! Chunky chicken!” O’SULLIVAN gets bored of lying ABOUT THE HOUSE and opens a restaurant with TESSA WYATT. Plagued by endless sitcom problems: double-bookings, triple-bookings, double-bookings which become triple-bookings, double-bookings by comical stereotypes (Geordies, labourers, stockbrokers), cancelled double-bookings meaning the restaurant is totally empty (a popular one, this, as it meant they didn’t have to employ any extra cast), double-bookings caused by Tessa’s meddling dad TONY BRITTON, and double-bookings who turn up late/early/when Richard and Tessa are having a sneaky tumble. Unaided and non-assisted by one-armed (there’s the gag, right there) washer-upper and Irish ex-con Albert.
