    So many candidates some of which have already been noted.

    I will put in a word for the 1986/88 series A Very Peculiar Practice.

    Graham Crowden brilliant; he would have been a great Dr Who.

    I would have but the telephone switchboard had me on hold.
    I'd also recommend any of the Philomena Cunk specials.

    Mum. Sitcom starring the rather lovely Lesley Manville as woman who recently lost her husband and having to deal with rude in laws and chav son and his gf. Tucked away on BBC2 at 10pm on a Tuesday, Not in your face funny but real quality writing and acting. Also Life in Pieces on Comedy Central or Amazon, American sitcom with four short stories about one family, Very funny indeed

    I'm Alan Partridge series and also Knowing Me Knowing You.

    Steve Coogan is an absolute genius and i'd put him up there with my local brewery for all the pleasure he's given me over the years. Partridge is getting on a bit now but i always find myself watching a bit here and there just about everyday. So much intricate humour and facial expressions. There is not a day goes by when i don't use a 'partridge-ism' during casual conversation and it's seemingly automatic which is a bit scary.

    I don't watch that much telly now as i find that despite all the channels we have and all the choice there is the less i can find that interests me although i watched that Upstart Crow malarkey with David Mitchell that wasn't too bad.

    Other TV series i have enjoyed in the past are Spender (surprisingly enough) with Jimmy Nail, Heartbeat was fantastic too and also Bottom and the old X-Files. Still cannot believe that Rik Mayall isn't with us anymore and still can't believe Fox Mulder looks like an old man in the revamp airing on C5 at the minute. Oh and Blackadder too was an absolute classic.

    When I'm struggling to find something to watch and my planner is all up to date, I wonder over the documentary section on the sky guide. Anything from Gold diggers to the greatest catch. Non of it is of any interest but it's so easy to end up being glued to the Tele.

    Ripping Yarns. Since 1975 I've had moments from the series etched into my memory. In Tomkinson's Schooldays, Tomkinson tries to run away from school, " I was three miles from Greybridge before I was captured by the school leopard". The football fan's wife in " Golden Gordon" hurriedly hiding the ornaments when she sees him coming home from the match.

    Hasn't aged well but still great stuff.

    Hammer House of Horror was another series that has just sprung to mind.
