A Fine Romance

Laura (Judi Dench) is still unmarried at thirty-seven. Her sister Helen (Susan Penhaligon) would like to see her 'married off', so she tries a spot of matchmaking. She introduces Laura to Mike (Michael Williams) at a party.

Laura and Mike don't really take to one another at first, but they pretend to get on well to keep Helen happy. As time goes by, a relationship develops, but it's very much 'on-off'.

    I loved this. I think the fact that they were married in real life must have made it even more difficult for them to play these roles so brilliantly. Michael was a great actor who is sadly missed (died 2001).

    I remember thinking that Judi Dench was a bit too old to be playing someone of 37, although the show was very funny and had some highly original comedy moments. Such as when Laura & Mike start snogging when she's doing the ironing- he reaches to put his arm round her waist, and grabs the hot iron instead...OWCH!!

    I do remember this being on the tv, and that all the people spoke nicely.
