Lavish period comedy drama Gentlemen’s Relish carried bags of charm with it’s tale set in Edwardian London and story of photographer Kingdom Swann who begins a series of tastefully nude tableaux scenes, what he doesn’t know however that his right hand man Cromwell Marsh is selling the pictures as pornography.

A fabulous cast led by the always watchable Billy Connolly and gorgeous production design and a typically sharp script from Reggie Perrin creator David Nobbs made this a real treat.
