Robin’s Nest (ITV 1977-1981, Richard O’Sullivan, Tessa Wyatt)

Published

on

Sitcom. Having created a great dynamic in Man About The House, series creators Mortimer and Cooke were unwilling to let that go when that show ended. They came up with not one spin off but two in the shape of George and Mildred and Robin’s Nest. In Nest we catch up with Robin, now a qualified chef and living with his girlfriend Vicky (something of a first this for a sitcom – a couple living together but not yet married).

When Robin spots an opportunity to open his own restaurant – the Robin’s Nest of the title, he persuades Vicky’s wealthy father James (who isn’t overly keen on Robin but will do anything to please his daughter) to provide financial backing. Over the course of the series Robin and Vicky get married and later give birth to twins; Many of the laughs in the show were provided by the brilliant David Kelly as the one armed Irish washer upper Albert Riddle (Kelly didn’t really have just one arm by the way!)

Unlike House Cooke and Mortimer didn’t write all the episodes but drafted in the likes of George Layton, Bernard McKenna, Terence Brady, Charlotte Bingham, Dave Freeman, Terence Feely, Richard Waring and Willis Hall. Richard O’Sullivan also contributed an excellent synth led theme tune.

A US version was made under the title Three’s A Crowd which starred John Ritter (this echoed the MATH adaptation Three’s Company which was hugely popular in the states).
