Don’t Rock The Boat (ITV 1982-1983, Nigel Davenport, Sheila White)

Don't Rock The Boat

In Sitcom Don’t Rock The Boat fiftysomething widower Jack Hoxton, who runs his own boatyard, falls in love with and marries Dixie, a former magician’s assistant  and half his age. His grown up children, Les (John Prince) and Billy (David Jansen), are far from happy when he starts seeing Dixie (Sheila White).

A lesser known entry in the John Esmonde and Bob Larbey canon but reasonably entertaining. It ran for two seasons.
