When advertising executive Caroline Wheatley places an ad for a live-in home help, she's a little perturbed when Charlie Burrows, a footballer whose career has stalled following an injury, appears at her luxurious country home claiming to be the applicant. However, Caroline's alluring, vivacious mother, Laura, is rather more appreciative of the good-looking and resourceful Charlie, who is also bringing up his daughter alone. Caroline's son Tom also warms to him and, before long, so does his mum; despite the unconventional circumstances and a few painfully awkward moments, a tentative romance begins...This engaging comedy series stars Joe McGann as Charlie and Diana Weston as Caroline, with Avengers siren Honor Blackman as Laura and future Bad Girls star Kellie Bright as Charlie's streetwise and tomboyish daughter, Joanna. 'The Upper Hand' was based on scripts from the hugely popular US sitcom 'Who's the Boss?'...and was a major success for Central Television, running for seven years in total. This release contains the complete fifth series, originally screened in 1993.
