Phil asks David to help him with his ex-girlfriend, who is stymying his love-life.

Stars George Cole as David Bliss, Diana Churchill as Anne Fellows, Colin Gordon as Tony Fellows, Donald Sinden as Phil Bender, Sheila Sweet as Zoe Hunter, Percy Edwards as 'Psyche' the Dog, Maxine Audley as Estelle Livingstone and Virginia Winter as Wanda Goddard.

Godfrey Harrison's sitcom about shy, bumbling bachelor David Alexander Bliss.

Beginning in 1953, it ran for six series of 118 episodes concluding in 1969 - but few survive in the BBC archive. (A TV series was made in 1969). For the first 7 episodes, David Tomlinson played David, but the rest starred the future star of The St Trinian's films - destined to find great fame as the dodgy Arthur Daley in ITV's Minder - George Cole.

Producer: Leslie Bridgmont

First broadcast on the BBC Home Service in January 1959.
