Up Rising ITV 2000 Nicola Pagett Anton Rodgers

Sitcom Up Rising detailed life for the generally oddball residents of the idyllic village of Rising, especially neuveau riche couple Maxine (Michelle Collins) and Terry Gaines (Kevin McNally) and old style Ronald (Anton Rodgers) and Sally Kegworthy (Nicola Pagett). Other characters included new age twosome Ariadne (Camilla Power) and Justin (Dominic Matham).

A very well cast series that seemed curiously old fashioned and as such never really found an audience.
