Synopsis:
Starring sitcom legends David Jason and Richard Wilson, this sharply scripted series details the multifarious difficulties involved in 'Getting Things Done' - as experienced by young married couple Peter and Sheila Barnes. From trying to book a holiday to being a best man, life seems to hand Peter Barnes more than his fair share of frustration. The only certainty is that whatever it is he's trying to arrange, it will entail an encounter with a jobsworth whose regulation response is a perfectly timed 'sharp intake of breath'...
David Jason is 'everyman' Peter, and Jacqueline Clarke his beleaguered spouse; Richard Wilson and Alun Armstrong play a variety of infuriatingly petty officials and disobliging professionals. Running for four hugely popular series, this set contains every episode - along with the pilot episode, transmitted as part of the 'Sound of Laughter' series.
