Leave It To Charlie (ITV 1978-1980, David Roper, Peter Sallis)



Leave It To Charlie

Sitcom Leave It To Charlie told stories of Lancastrian insurance agent Charlie Fisher (David Roper), who though keen was not quite cut out for the insurance world. Charlie regularly had dealings with the slightly mad Harry (the fabulous David Roos). Charlie’s boss was Arthur Simister played by Peter Sallis.

David Roper had scored a big hit with his previous series The Cuckoo Waltz co-starring with Diane Keen.
