"Sorry..." harks back to the early 1980's and unfortunately hasn't aged well. Henry Nunn is a 60 year old librarian stifled by his marriage to Sybil. He inherits a house from Uncle Crispin so ups and leaves Sybil to move to his new home (as you do). Once in the house he finds the rest of the cast – squatter Alex the punk rocker with the green hair, Mumtaz the shopkeeper with the turban (1980s so racism is rife). Finally Doreen and Tom the amiable Northern, working class couple – he is a shop steward. All the above continue to use Henry's house as something of a stopping off point during their daily life, much to Henry's irritation.

You can get attached to this programme as the 2 series wear on. Enough to keep watching when you have a spare half an hour but it is a long way from the "must watch" category. Peter Tilbury is a co-writer on the first series and you can see him planting his familiar diatribes on Robin Bailey but these miss the target a lot of the times. I don't know whether the interaction between characters was meant to be awkward but it is. I found Diana Rayworth's Doreen becoming quite enjoyable after a few shows.

There are highs but unfortunately quite a lot of the time the programme doesn't do much. Nice situation, decent actors, decent writers. It could have been better.
