if I remember correctly Slingers Day was a follow up to Trippers Day which starred Leonard Rossiter who died shortly after and they brought in Brucie to basically play the same role

What about the series about the man with special needs? I was told all the tapes were wiped and it is gone forever.

My favourite will always be "Early Doors".

Rev and Detectorists were also two other good ones which didn't seem mainstream.

Anyone remember these two Jim Davidson sitcoms?

I vaguely remember one where the lead character was an illustrator/cartoonist and he did his drawings whilst wearing a glove puppet (for some reason), anybody recall the name?

A Sharp Intake of Breath - David Jason starred in this I believe.

As jane2008 mentioned, it was called Keep it in the Family with Robert Gillespie playing Dudley Rush. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QK9roktr-SY

Just a Gigolo, from 1992 or 93ish, with the lovely Tony Slatterly.

The Two Of Us. What Nicholas Lyndhurst did when he wasn't doing Only Fools and Horses in the 80s.

And these two I remember mainly for the theme songs and the actresses' hair:

Life Without George.

Watching (quite liked this one at the time).

At the time, I rather liked 'The Cuckoo Waltz': set in Manchester, deckchairs in the living room, and Diane Keen.
