Listened as usual this evening to No Commitments on Radio 4. This is written by Simon Brett, who had such a succèssfou with AfterHenry. It is quite old fashioned, especially all the stuff about Beckenham being posh, but well acted, highly agreeable and has Bill Nighy in it. That trademark slow laugh of his ranks, IMO, with Paul Eddington’s snigger as Jerry in The Good Life or Leslie Philips’ in The Navy Lark. I wish the BBC would do more of this tightly scripted, gentle comedy, like Clare in the Community, which I love.
