End of Part One – Doctor Eyes

The first series witnessed Vera and Norman Straightman (Denise Coffey and Tony Aitken) moving into a terrace much like Coronation Street. Their lives are disrupted by bizarre characters played by the excellent ensemble cast: Fred Harris, Sue Holderness, David Simeon and Dudley Stevens. Series two ditched Vera and Norman in favour of outright genre spoofing. Monty Python had been here before, but rarely with such precision. The Doctor Who spoof Dr Eyes and Nationtrite are two notable examples.
