TV Edith (BBC-1 2017, Alison Steadman, John Cleese) Published 2 years ago on April 11, 2017 For Edith (Alison Steadman), life is pretty good. She’s been a widow for some years now, but her children live locally and drop by regularly, and she enjoys daily visits from Phil (John Cleese), an old boyfriend who now lives across the road. Phil dreams of marrying Edith, and the pair of them upping sticks and moving abroad to the sunshine. But after months of turning him down, on the happy day Edith finally says “yes”, there’s a knock on the door – and there on the step, with a large suitcase, is her 50 year old son Roger (Jason Watkins). He announces that he’s left his wife, his kids and his good job at the bank, and come home in an attempt to find his lost happiness again. And in a blink, to Edith’s dismay and Phil’s fury, all dreams are on hold. The cast also includes Jessica Hynes as Roger’s abandoned wife Wendy, Anne Reid as the interfering housekeeper Mrs Gale, Rosie Cavaliero as Roger’s money-driven sister Sandra, James Cosmo as Edith’s troublesome ex-boyfriend Bob and Peter Egan as the confrontational local resident Mr Dugdale. John Cleese said of the production “These are the most enjoyable scripts I’ve been sent in the last 100 years. It will also be particularly nice to work with Alison again since we joined forces in Clockwise all that time ago.” cast Alison Steadman as Edith John Cleese as Phil Jason Watkins as Roger Jessica Hynes as Wendy Anne Reid as Mrs Gale Rosie Cavaliero as Sandra James Cosmo as Bob Peter Egan as Mr Dugdale key behind the scenes crew Charles McKeown as Writer Chris Sussman as Executive Producer Moira Williams as Executive Producer Humphrey Barclay as Producer Sandy Johnson show type sitcom broadcast from In production for broadcast 2017 network and production companies BBC One – BBC Studios Alison SteadmanAnne ReidBBCCharles McKeownHumphrey BarclayJames CosmoJason WatkinsJessica HynesJohn CleesePeter EganRosie CavalieroSitcomsTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes14 hours ago House Hunters: Green Acres In Agoura Hills (S153EP2 HGTV Mon 25 Feb 2019) Green Acres In Agoura Hills: A single mother wants to relocate to a home in the city of Agoura Hills,...
