An amusing and cleverly scripted UK comedy series written by Richard Waring of classic comedy gems such as 'The Marriage Lines', 'Not in Front of the Children' and 'My Wife Next Door' fame.

A pilot for a US adaptation of this series entitled 'Wild About Harry' was aired on NBC on May 26th 1978. I would like to thank Steven Smith for all his kindness and assistance with the episode synopsis - bless you Steven, couldn't have done it without you!
