We’ll Think Of Something (ITV Sitcom, Sam Kelly, Marcia Warren)



In one season sitcom We’ll Think of Something middle-aged Les Brooks (Sam Kelly) is made redundant. Determined to not join the dole queue he teams up with mates Dennis (Roger Sloman) and Eddie (Philip Dunbar) in a series of get rich quick schemes. None of which manage to come off. Meanwhile Les’s wife Maureen (Marcia Warren) is forced to get a job as a barmaid in a pub.

We’ll Think of Something came and went without anyone noticing but it did offer strong lead roles for the always excellent Kelly and Warren.
