Sitcom Advent Calendar Day Nine

After yesterday’s teaser, you’re all dying to know what’s behind door nine, I can tell.

It’s Mulberry.

I’m old enough to remember Karl Howman from the hit sitcom Brush Strokes, but you younglings probably think he just sells floor washer. Anyway, Mulberry was written by John Esmonde and Bob Larbey (who have written a number of great shows), and lasted for two series, even though a third concluding run was planned but never produced.

Spoiler Alert (highlight to read): Mulberry is the son of Death and Springtime, here to help Geraldine McEwan pass peacefully into the afterlife. We’re a long way from Jacko here.

This one really creeps up on you. It’s beguiling. You’ll resist at first, but if you’re not utterly charmed by the end, I don’t want to know you.
