Ida Willis is coincidentally sent by her domestic agency to work for the son she gave up for adoption 28 years before – handsome doctor Robert Price (Christopher Blake), and his model wife, Angie (Jennifer Lonsdale) in their London flat.


Sitcom legend Mollie Sugden starred as the fear-inspiring housekeeper who soon made her maternal presence felt, giving Robert’s adoptive mother some unwelcome competition and ensuring that life would never be the same again for the Prices.

Devised and scripted by You’re Only Young Twice creators Pam Valentine and Michael Ashton, That’s My Boy was an enduring success for Yorkshire Television, running for five series and two Christmas specials.

That’s My Boy also appeared as a  comic strip in Look-In magazine in 1986.
