Tales Of Para Handy, The (BBC-1 1994-1995, Gregor Fisher)

Period comedy drama series The Tales Of Para Handy took us to the 1930′s where Captain Para Handy and his hapless on the Vital Spark ply the Scottish Highland coastline with many an unlikely cargo. Season two contained only three episodes.

A wonderful period charm and fabulous acting made this a real gem of a series. For some unfathamable reason only 9 episodes were made.

Two earlier sitcoms also featured the character, these were called Para Handy – Master Mariner and The Vital Spark.
