    Lovely series. I always remember Ralph Bates in horror films, which is why I found it unusual for him to be playing a role of been well mannered and comical.

    Me and the mrs loved this, was this the one where the leader of the group always enquired about “sexual problems”?

    Great show, that lasted too short a time. Just 14 episodes.

    There was an American remake with Judd Hirsch that lasted for 90 episodes. Some of them used the exact same script.

    I believe there would have been more episodes of the original but Ralph Bates was too ill to make any more.

    A few years later I was surprised to see the remake, it was shown at an odd time during the period when both BBC1 & ITV were starting daytime schedules & were filling them out with odd imports and repeats.

    Dear John wS a lovely series. Sadly, I use to always recall him playing a vampire worshipper from a Dracula film starring Christopher Lee.

    Loved the series when it was originally aired.
    Unlike some other series, when I re watched it recently, it had lost none of it's charm or humour with the passing of time.
