This Debbie Horsfield-created series moved the proletarian Belcher clan into the servants’ quarters of the aristo Tundish family for an offbeat comedy of the classes.

Adulterous pregnancy and murder were among the blackly funny consequences of some strange liaisons and allegiances at crumbling Tundish Hall.

The Riff Raff Element was critically acclaimed but went largely unwatched.
