Genteel English sit-com
The stories and dialog are very neatly contrived; the actors are among the best. This is classic English post-war comedy.
Sweet, lighthearted comedy
Wonderful show! Top-notch actors and clever situations. It takes listening to a few episodes to get a sense of the characters.
Quality comedy in the everyday events of life, it has me laughing in surprise! Charming and light.
Brilliant relaxing show with harmless enjoyable humor great fun all round 👍
