It’s the final series of
, which is being retired by the BBC after 11 years. So perhaps now is not the time to marvel at how this strange, pantomime sitcom has managed to last for so long.
The deeply resistible Harper household squirm, mug and double-take their way through an opening episode that sees brat-daughter Janey the subject of three marriage proposals from comedy half-wit men. As the gags fall like dead birds in a nuclear winter, stridently stupid paterfamilias Ben Harper (Robert Lindsay) and his wife, Susan (Zoë Wanamaker), each choose their perfect suitor for Janey. It is a very long half hour.
Kenzo's father asks for Janey's hand in marriage, but she is already smitten with good-looking Australian Craig - and Susan is thrilled to learn he is also planning a proposal. Comedy, starring Daniela Denby-Ashe, Robert Lindsay and Zoe Wanamaker.
