Dream Stuffing

I do enjoy finding an old sitcom that completely passed me by for all these years. Dream Stuffing was written by Paul Hines and Su Wilkins, starred Rachael Weaver and Amanda Symonds, and aired on Channel Four in the early months of 1984.

I like that the set seems to be modelled on the Only Fools & Horses one, as if it was being lived in by The Young Ones. Dream Stuffing had a single repeat run a year later, and has never had a commercial release.

This show was the first production of Humphrey Barclay Productions, who would later make Hot Metal, Surgical Spirit and Desmonds.
