What first attracted you to the millionaire Paul Daniels?

5 for me.

The third series is really mean-spirited. Jim is horrible in it. And the specials are largely awful. But my word, those first two series.

Denise: I bought a lovely top on the market today.
Barbara: Ooh did you? What’s it like?
Denise: It’s blue.
Barbara: Ooh, will you get me one next time you’re there?

“WHAT THE BLOODY HELL IS DR. CURTIS SINCLAIR PLAYING AT? I’VE GOT A LITTLE STIFFY HERE AND HE WANTS TO WAIT TILL MARRAKESH?!?”

The first 2 series, the first Xmas one and The Queen of Sheba are absolutely top tier television. 5.

The Queen of Sheba is so bloody good. That scream of “Jiiiiiimmmmm!” when she realises that nana has died. Getting a bit emotional just thinking about it.

Is that the 2 specials with Denise giving birth and Nana dying? Was about to post the same if so
