British comedy series about the Harper family. Father Ben (Robert Lindsay) is a dentist who'd like to see his children move out of the house as soon as possible because all he wants is peace and quiet. His eldest son Nick (Kris Marshall) - who later on in the series does move out - is a complete idiot and a no-good who can't hold on to any of the various jobs he has. Daughter Janey (Daniela Denby-Ashe) is very shallow and not very picky when it comes to boys while son Michael (Gabriel Thomson) is way too smart for Ben and doesn't feel the need to communicate much with his father. His curious wife Susan (Zoe Wanamaker) clearly makes all the decisions in the household. Later on in the series Ben gets an assistant at work, goofy and naive Roger (Keiron Self), and when Janey finally moves out, no-brainer Abi (Siobhan Hayes) moves in, while Janey keeps visiting, sometimes bringing along her little son, Kenzo (Bay Kenzo Thomas & Noah Davis, Tayler Marshall) . So much for Ben's peace and quiet.
Really love this show, watch it every time its on TV. Its not as good as it use to be as theirs no nick any more and he was one of my favourite characters. But still great to watch always guaranteed a laugh!!!
