Classic Sitcom

How on earth has this no comment? It features Nicholas Lyndhurst as "Ashley", who was obviously famous by then for Only Fools and Horses.

He was one half of a young metropolitan couple struggling to get by independently, the female role taken by a lovely, thickly-black haired lass by the name of either Janet or Elaine Dimbleby (I may be getting the character and actresses' names mixed-up).

The young couple drove around in a Citreon 2CV and as I remember, they had moved into a downstairs flat in some trendy London suburb and the plot centred around them trying to make a success of their young independent lives. At one "cliff-hanger" point, Elaine/Janet became pregnant...

It really was actually quite funny. ITV produced a lot of good solid sitcoms during this period, amongst them the more acerbic but equally solid "Watching", which seems to have a much larger and established fan-base.
