In one of his last acting roles before ‘coming down’ to television games shows, Leslie Crowther played Clive Gibbons – a happy but besotted husband – in ITV’s My Good Woman.


Sylvia Syms was his wife, a whirlwind charity worker leaving her antique shop-owning husband in the wake of her good works.

Keith Barron initially played Clive’s next-door neighbour and best friend, Philip Broadmore. When Barron left, Glyn Houston replaced him as ladies man Bob Berris.

Mother-in-law jokes were plentiful.
