This is a classic but an almost forgotten show. The show is set in a grimy suburb boarding house run by Rigsby (Leonard Rossiter). It follows his dealings with his two student boarders; Alan (Richard Beckinsale) and Philip(Don Warrington) and his attempts to seduce Miss Jones (Frances de la Tour) which come to an unforgettable climax in the series finale.
With such a strong cast and scripts, the eposides are witty and fast. The strength of Rossiters performances shine through and his talent and comic timing give it an edge over many of the other boring sitcoms of the time. One of the few timeless sitcoms made by ITV, it can still be seen from time to time on ITV3.
