Sitcom Advent Calendar Door Thirteen

Dan Quayle pops up in an episode of this, and it was shown daily on BBC1 at half eleven in the morning (those must have been school holidays or when I was off sick).

Regular visitors to this blog will know I have a soft spot for the oft-overlooked Hale & Pace, and here’s another thing that seems to have been forgotten … their Channel 4 sitcom The Management.
