Synopsis:
Like Open All Hours, this 1984 series saw Ronnie Barker respond to a great Roy Clarke script with a memorable performance. In Plantagenet Evans, like Arkwright or Porridge's Fletcher, Barker found a unique, witty, rounded character which he could make his own (including, in this case, a fantastically comic Welsh accent). In the small Welsh Village of Llantisiliant, Plantagenet Evans advertises himself as a 'Genius, Photographer and Man of Letters.' Larger than life and flamboyantly dressed, Evans is an egotistical, overbearing character who sees himself as more of an artist than an artisan.
A man of hidden means who also deals in anything saleable under the guise of "antiques", the sharp-tongued Evans is driven by lust and other sordid motives. Perhaps that is why his long-standing, long-suffering fiancee Rachel is employed as his assistant, a position that enables her to ensure his wandering hands don't wander too far and his wandering eye doesn't wander too wide.
