Bit of a Do, A (ITV 1989, David Jason, Nicola Pagett)

Published

on


David Jason leads the all-star cast in comedy drama series A Bit of A Do, with each episode taking place at a different social function or ‘do’. Based in a fictional Yorkshire town, the show features Jason and Gwen Taylor as the working-class Simcocks who bump into their bitter rivals, the middle-class Rodenhursts, at the various bashes.

Add to the mix their gaggle of friends and there’s almost certainly the chance of one disaster or another amid the warm wine and vol-au-vents.

Writer David Nobbs is also the creator of the legendary Reginald Perrin.
