Thames TV produced this series about the comings and goings in a large London house which had been divided into bed-sitters and rented out to a variety of characters.

Self-contained tales unfolded thrice-weekly of the variously unfortunate inhabitants of the bed sitting rooms of 35 Mafeking Terrace, West Kensington.

The owner, Dorothy, was played by attractive 38-year-old Sylvia Kay, with Bryan Marshall as her husband, Clive, who would rather live off the tenants’ rents than get a steady job.
