Synopsis

All six episodes from the 1972 comedy series starring Beryl Reid as a woman attempting to get to grips with her late husband's shaky business empire. The show, one of the first sitcoms scripted by the writing pair Johnnie Mortimer and Brian Cooke, follows Marigold Alcock (Reid) as she acquaints herself with the intricacies of a business group that includes Captain Sotheby's Racing Service and Alcock Economy Coach Tours. Perhaps the only thing more troubling than the shoddy brands themselves are her new business partner, Richard Gander (Richard O'Sullivan), and the somewhat old 'office boy', Ernest (John Cater). The episodes are: 'The Safe Breaker', 'Husband in a Hurry', 'Soho Is too Small', 'Pontoon', 'The Strip Club' and 'Artistic Books, Soho, Ltd'.
