    Yet another post from me: This series was canned after it's star died.

    No, not really. The star was replaced, and it ran for 2 more years.

    Prior to clicking on the link, I correctly assumed that you were referring to Tripper's Day - I always thought that they were two different programmes, albeit with the same theme - a sitcom set in a Kwik Save / Lo Cost like 1980s supermarket.

    I don't really remember the Rossiter version, although he does perform in the series rather like a poor man's John Cleese to be honest - very different to Rising Damp. Ironically, Bruce Forsyth gets mentioned in the first episode of that series by Rossiter with one of the co-stars going "good game, good game", mimicking Forsyth's voice - not the character he played two years later in Slinger's Day, but by Forsyth himself by name.

    Slinger's Day was not too bad - ITV gave Forsyth plenty of exposure during the autumn 1986 schedules - he was doing Slinger's for Thames, while on Fridays of the same week, he was appearing as himself in Play Your Cards Right! What with his Hot Streak game show in the States and his cameo as a game show host in Magnum PI, Brucie's 1986 diary must have been full to the brim at the time!
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).
