    Mid eighties show which I remember (possibly incorrectly) as being based on the family of incorrigible villains from the Rumpole stories, the Timsons.



    I think the series was called "Here come the..." I've looked for "Here Come the Timsons" without luck - so, obviously, either the family name was changed for some reason, or the similarity was purely coincidental.

    Perhaps The Nesbitts are Coming - tv's only musical sitcom.

    Thanks, Cap. That could be it. I'm sure the one I'm thinking off was more London based though - and the frequent court scenes looked like they'd shared the Rumpole sets.



    Might be mind tricks though!

    Mr Big was rather earlier. Surely all court sets look much the same - presumably companies all share them like the Granada studios mock-Parliament and No 10 sets.

    You are right, of course, but what I'm remembering was a very similar feel and aesthetic to the Rumpole series of the time. I may be away with the fairies.



    The Nesbitts series was similar - the idea of a clan of crooks - so maybe that's the one.



    Thanks.
