The House That Jack Built

Show Summary

Dreaming Of A Dynasty... Adam Faith stars as Jack Squire, a wealthy, self-made property developer in The House That Jack Built. Jack is a man who puts his family about everything else and who will stop at nothing to build the dynasty he's always dreamed of. He lives with his wife, Maxine (Gillian Taylforth), youngest son, JJ (Luke D Woolfson), and daughter, Lisa (Kellie Bright), in great style as befits "Hertfordshire's first family". And at home, Jack knows best-though his "benevolent dictatorship" isn't always appreciated. Roger, the Squires' eldest son (Richard Lumsden), is employed in the family business. He is desperate to please his dad, yet wants to be his own person. His wife Vicky (Carli Norris), rarely sees eye to eye with her father-in-law, though a past encounter suggests a very different story. JJ is Jack's biggest disappointment. He is more interested in cars and pulling girls than taking his dad's business seriously. But Lisa, his spoilt sister, is the apple of Jack's eye. If she gets her way-which she usually does-she'll be heiress to the Squire fortune, but her methods are hardly praiseworthy. Notes... Badly criticised by critics before it aired, many viewers had already tuned out come the second episode. Both Radio and TV Times predicted the show would not return for a second series following the third episode, and they were right. This mainly due to the show performing very badly with ratings, and viewers felt the cast and main set were to awkward to watch. This was finally confirmed by the death of Adam Faith. Six episodes were produced but only 5 were broadcast.moreless
