Anyone else recall this short-lived misfire? I was fortunate enough to be in the studio audience for the recording of two episodes, in the early 1980's. It had all the Croft and Perry elements, as far as characterisation, but, just didn't gel, despite its star lead, and support from well known character actors. Perhaps Perry's influence was missed, as Lloyd and Croft co-wrote this - much better effort with 'Allo 'Allo.
I've downloaded copies (in case it disappears) but typically I found them while in the middle of an explosion of work. I do remember watching the series at the time and quite enjoying it. Hopefully soon I'll get time to sit down and watch them again and see if I agree with the opinion of the 15-year-old me!
