This ITV comedy starred Gwen Taylor who played Barbara Liversidge, a 52-year-old opinionated Yorkshirewoman, who ruled over her cabbie husband Ted (Sam Kelly) and nouveau-riche sister Jean (Sherrie Hewson) who was married to the simpering Phil (John Arthur).
They lived in Pudsey, Leeds, West Yorkshire.
Their twenty-something lovelorn son Neil (Benedict Sandiford) did very little, while their daughter, the long-suffering Linda (Elizabeth Carling) was married to Martin Pond (Mark Benton), a TV presenter with his own show (Pond Life) on a local TV channel.
Barbara’s colleague at the doctor’s surgery was Doreen (Madge Hindle).
