Lots of things to watch! I've heard very good things of this, now in its second season and in Amazon:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYc3LXqEyhg
You mean I don't have to buy "epix" to stream this?

tbh I have no idea, Mike, I'll check it out in Amazon, no way I'm going to pay for another streaming platform
"Add on" subscription from Amazon.... >:(

Yep  :-\
"Free 7 day Trial" . Now I have to Binge Watch the entire second season before Sunday!

Well done!

But only 5 episodes in season 2  :o, I'm assuming they got shut down by the Plague... Same thing with the other series I'm watching, "Lupin".

A little oddity from 1968. Ordered the film. Some nice shots of Hampstead.

A curio with some dated charm to it (especially the London urban landscapes you mention, Mo), but for a "modern" musical most songs are pure -and quite bad at that- MOR/easy listening. Moreover, the 2 leads can't act to save their life and he's camper than Liberace.

Oh I totally agree. And there's also Humperdink singing the theme tune but nice street scenes.

A nice little film this. Many stars appear in it and Suzy Kendal looks fantastic.

Wow , what a cast, everyone that was anyone in British comedy at that time , even Dora Bryan ffs.
Ian Hendry was also an outstanding actor and in particular in 1965s The Hill with Sean Connery.
I wont make any deals with you , I've resigned. .
I wont be pushed, filed , stamped , indexed , briefed , debriefed OR NUMBERED!

A feast of un-sophisticated humour, judging by the trailer!   ;D TBH, never heard about that
