I remember being very impressed by this dark and unusual comedy series.
I remember being very impressed by this. It confounded expectations in a number of ways. At first glance it appeared to be a standard Richard Briers cosy comedy but it soon became apparent that it was something far darker and stranger, and featured an unusually understated performance from Ade Edmondson. The main gist of the plot, as I remember it, was that Godfrey Spry (Richard Briers) suffers some kind of head injury which causes him to believe, completely, everything he sees and hears in advertisements. Many dark, comic moments ensue. I've wanted to see this again but TV repeats and DVD/video releases evade me. I'm sure a repeated screening would reveal this to be a forgotten cult classic.
