After rising to stardom in the unforgettable role of Mr Humphries in the BBC’s Are You Being Served?, John Inman starred in this ITV sitcom as Neville Sutcliffe, the owner of a Blackpool chippy who relocates to Sussex, where he has inherited half of his late father’s struggling seaside-rock factory in Littlehampton.
Neville has also inherited half a house and a massive overdraft.
Produced by Carry On veteran Gerald Thomas, Odd Man Out also featured sitcom favourite Josephine Tewson as Neville’s less than welcoming step-sister, Dorothy, who had inherited the other half of the ailing business.
Allan Cuthbertson, Victor Maddern and David Lodge were among the guest stars.
John Inman died on 8 March 2007, aged 71, as the result of a Hepatitis A infection. Josephine Tewson passed away on 18 August 2022, aged 91, at Denville Hall, a care home for actors and other members of the entertainment industry in north London.
