The other long lost 80s LWT sitcom is Me and My Girl with Richard o'Sullivan, Joan Sanderson and Tim Brook Taylor. I can't find much out about what happened to Joanne Ridley who played the girl.

Fond memories of that show. Fewer fond memories of another, probably long forgotten, sitcom of around the same era 'That's My Boy' (starring Molly Sugden)

The somewhat redeeming feature of That's My Boy was the appearance of Jennifer Lonsdale, previously star of ATV's The Cedar Tree - somewhat forgotten in its own right, but out on DVD.

Three from the early days of Central that no-one mentions at all these days:

The Home Front - comedy drama written by Peter Tinniswood, starring Brenda Bruce - with her catchphrase 'Am I right? I am'.

Goodnight and God Bless - Donald Churchill as a smarmy comic/game show host, wife played by Judy Loe. Remember a scene where a producer says to Churchill 'Your show keeps the money rolling in so we can concentrate on the significant franchise grabbing stuff..' Cut to an appropriately deflated Churchill.

The Cabbage Patch - Friday at 8.30, iirc, sitcom starring Julia Foster - think I've seen a TV Times clipping suggesting it was by a first-time TV writer - I rather liked it, but how much was due to Julia and how much the jokes I honestly couldn't say.
