This gentle, romantic sitcom stars the real-life partnership of Pauline Collins and John Alderton as a couple recounting the eventful earlier years of their marriage. Clara (Pauline Collins) and Charles Danby (John Alderton) revisit several key moments from their courtship and marriage of ten years. Clara is now a successful children's author, while Charles, affectionately known as 'CD' ('Clever Drawers'), is an established actor. But life wasn't always this comfortable for the Danby's; early days saw the couple struggling to make ends meet as their fledgling careers seemed to founder, and Clara's choice of husband caused a little unease for her aristocratic family.
However, the combination of Clara's oddly compelling logic and CD's eternal optimism saw them through those unsteadier times - and would they really have wished it otherwise?

Delightful and charming - No, Honestly: Series review by AW

Spoiler Alert

Gosh, 1974!

13 episodes.

Never saw the original broadcasting, but I like Alderton and Collins and wanted to contrast it with the recently viewed later series YES HONESTLY, with Liza Goddard and Donal Donnelly, written by the same scriptwriters, Brady & Bingham.

John A plays "CD" (Charles Danby),a sensible and patient jobbing actor who meets Pauline C as Claira Burrell, at a party. Instant attraction.

Each episode starts with them sitting straight to camera as if introducing themselves years on and reflecting on their marriage, then showing snippets of the romance and route to getting to know each other. Claira's character is quite kooky and totally fey. Doesn't seem to know how to turn on a TV!! She comes from an aristocratic family, who are otherworldly & have a butler. Daddy is obsessed with gardening & plants and Mummy neighs like a horse & observes all the proprieties. Hilarity and total confusion ensue.

Quirky and charming series, have put next disc on the list. Always lovely to have non- smutty, genuine comedy to lighten the mood in the times between serious dramas, with their general gloom and violence.
