    Default Duty Free

    Remember that? It was about a married couple on hoiday in Spain (mid-late 1980's I think it was aired).

    It starred Keith Baron and the woman out of the oxo advert I seem to remember!

    Someone's just reminded me about it because they've just sent me the theme tune.

    I always was astounded how the same families kept turning up at the same resort at the same time.......

    I had a feeling the couples would start "swinging" at any moment

    Yeah Gwen Taylor..wasn't she in The Life of Brian? The 'stop pickin' your nose' woman? I too used to watch Duty Free. Speaking of Keith Barron, he played a more successful (if you could call it that) adulter in a mini series that was on in the early nineties called Take me home. Great it was.

    I never knew she was in The Life Of Brian (one of my favourite films), until I looked up about her on IMDB yesterday

    They've been showing it on ITV3 again and it still makes me chuckle.
