    Long before London Weekend Television sitcoms about bus drivers and teachers were to become etched into the UK nation's conscience, was this gentle comedy about domestic bliss. Presumably intended for the winter schedule of 1968? but ended up being shown in the summer and all over the place, plugging holes in LWT's industrial dispute ridden schedule. Paul Daneman and Nyree Dawn Porter really sparked as the wedded couple clashing over over everyday problems of for example of getting the car fixed. Also what worked well for this particular type of comedy was the old 45 minute format. However by the second series both Nyree and 15 minutes of the programme had gone, and the show had been eclipsed by Reg Varney and a large green bus.
