Man About the House

Like the two previous series, the titles for five and six shared the same premise: a boat trip on the Thames, with O'Sullivan at the wheel. Again, there are variations in the scenarios; for instance, Thomsett's bikini is whipped off by a fishing line in one, and in the other she laughs when her beer can hits a diver. One has a weird purple logo, with crazy jungle lettering; the other drops it in favour of a plain font, of the kind that could be found on many an American police series at the time. At least Hawksworth's excellent 'Up To Date' tune was retained for all six series.
