Sitcom depicting the awful Brandon family, an extended Northern clan struggling with the miseries and stresses of family life. There’s miserable pessimist Uncle Mort, his sharp-tongued sister Annie who is constantly arguing with husband Les, their laid-back son Carter and his not so laid-back fiancé Pat, and finally old Uncle Stavely who carries his friend’s ashes around his neck in a box and only enters the constant bickering with a cry of "I ‘eard that! Pardon?".

BCG Review:

Based on three of Peter Tinniswood’s books (A Touch Of Daniel, I Didn’t Know You Cared and Except You’re A Bird) this sitcom is better than most of the era. The Brandon's are all great characters but it's really held together by the pessimistic Uncle Mort - a very funny character (who else would be happy that the doctor told them they only have six months to live!).
