Shelley

Show Summary

James Shelley is highly educated and has a PhD in Geography. He is also unemployed and has no intention of working. He lives with his girlfriend Fran in a bedsit at the home of Mrs. Hawkins (known as Mrs. H). Most of the episodes see Shelley either battling with the local labour exchange (job centre) or with various employers in short-lived jobs. The later episodes see Shelley and Fran married and the birth of their daughter Emma, bu eventually Fran gets tired of Shelley's laziness and leaves him. The last two series see Shelley living on his own in a bachelor flat. The comedy was revived in 1988 after a gap under the title The Return of Shelley. Subsequent series reverted to the original title Shelley.

  • Much malligned and underrated. One of the lost comedy greats. Buy this when it finally comes out on dvd.

    Shelley and the 90s series the Return of Shelley are/were comedy greats. Hywell Bennet had some of the finest lines of 80s and 90s social comment through comedy but seems to have been overlooked by a fine range of comedy programmes over the eighties and nineties. Lines about the connection between Jeffrey Archer and Dickens (neither having written anything decent in the 100yrs) and the advantage of private medicine being Laura Ashley bandages still bring a smile to my face now. Buy this when it finally comes out on dvd.moreless
  • THE EPISODE, NOT FRANKENSTEIN'S MONSTER

    Once Upon a Time "The Doctor" Review: A Patched-Together Abomination

    Like please, please please please don't tell me Once Upon a Time just went ahead and made black-and-white movies into another dimension. Maybe that was just a nightmare?
