Ffizz is one of those sitcoms that passed me by, and only thanks to the folks at Network, did I ever get a chance to visit it recently. Written by Richard Fegen and Andrew Norriss, who went on to create The Brittas Empire, it features fantastic appearances from Richard Griffiths and Benjamin Whitrow. They are both charming, the comedy punches up, and it’s well worth a watch.
It premiered on Wednesday 9th September 1987, and opened with eight million viewers, which is roughly the same numbers that the Saturday repeat of ‘Allo ‘Allo was getting. By the end of the first series that had dropped to a still respectable six million.
