Storyline

Terry Scott is a youngish bachelor who wants to achieve wealth without putting in any hard work. The scheming Terry lives with his mother at 33, Lobelia Avenue in Tooting, London. They have a simple and easily led lodger, Hugh Lloyd, who works at a local aircraft factory. The two often try to make money through one of Scott's schemes. Their next door neighbours, the Crispins and the Wormolds, also make frequent appearances. Mr Crispin is a loud mouth who thinks violence will solve a problem, Mrs Crispin is a snob and their daughter Norma is constantly chased after by men. On the other side, the Wormolds are an old couple with Harold being very doddery. In the last episode of the fifth series, Hugh won £5,000 on the Premium Bonds (the highest prize at the time) and the following series showed the two of them undertaking a world cruise. The neighbours and mother had left the show.

Lots of laughs.
3 May 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Number 33 Lobelia Avenue, the home of Terry, his mum and their lodger Hugh. Each episode sees the pair involved in some sort of scheme or escapade.

It's a very funny series, I hadn't seen a single episode, but stumbled on it by accident, I've binge watched most of it, I found it very original, funny, and way ahead of its time. I wonder how many other shows and sketches were inspired by this, it is so well written, Chapman did a great job.

The main trio are a scream, but so often the laughs come from the neighbours, The Crispins and Wormalds are hilarious, Mollie Sugden and Patricia Hayes are a scream, such comedy talents.

Of the episodes I saw, my favourite had to be A Fete worse than Death, with Joan Hickson and Patsy Smart, incredibly funny.

How sad that so much of it is missing, a date that affected many shows of the time, including Doctor Who, let's hope some are found in the future, a few have surfaced over the years.

Very funny, 8/10.
