Bernard Hepton played Norman Potter, a former factory worker whose get up and go had got up and gone, and who was content to do little all day except watch television.
His wife Sadie (Rosemary Leach) approached life with all the enthusiasm of one who had spent most of hers washing, shopping, cooking and cleaning.
Neither truly listened to the other’s woes and complaints. Even their daughter Marilyn (“she’s got fat legs and a deep freeze the size of our kitchen – and nothing in it!”) seemed a disillusioned soul.
