Kind deeds go spectacularly askew in this gently comic all-star drama. A marriage and home can be made complete with the arrival of a new baby, but Shirley Frame (Brenda Blethyn) feels a need to share her good fortune by going out into the world and helping others driving husband Phil (Warren Clarke) up the wall. It s not easy being a Good Samaritan in a world of tower blocks, drug abuse and homelessness, even if your own life is rosy. Shirley identifies a string of potential good causes, leaving Phil holding the baby as she tries and fails to fix the lives of others. Whether coaxing a potential suicide from a watery grave, giving reading lessons to an illiterate young mum with an abusive husband, or trying her hand at marriage guidance,Shirley puts her foot in it at every good turn and invariably brings other people s problems too close to home for comfort. Joining double Oscar nominee, BAFTA and Golden Globe winner Blethyn (Secrets & Lies, Little Voice) and the ever-dependable Clarke (Dalziel & Pascoe, Nice Work) in this 1991 BBC six-parter are Celia Imrie, Jemma Redgrave and Ken Stott, who were all on track to become equally well-loved household names. Now on DVD for the first time, this is a wry comedy of errors about losing the plot while attempting to mend the ways of life s ne er-do-wells and no-hopers.
