Rosie (BBC Sitcom, Paul Greenwood, Tony Haygarth)



Rosie BBC Sitcom, Paul Greenwood

BBC sitcom Rosie followed naive young police constable Michael Penrose (Paul Greenwood), he had a possessive girlfriend Gillian (Frankie Jordan) and a strange family.

The show started off as The Growing Pains of PC Penrose with Rosie working away from his home town, but shortened to Rosie when PC Penrose returned home. Star Greenwood did a great job on the theme tune too.
