Comedy legend Ronnie Barker stars as genius photographer Plantagenet Evans in this classic BBC comedy.
Comedy legend Ronnie Barker (The Two Ronnies, Porridge and Open All Hours) stars as genius of ‘everything’, Plantagenet Evans, in this classic BBC comedy.
In the small Welsh Village of Llantisiliant, Plantagenet Evans advertises himself as a ‘Genius, Photographer and Man of Letters.’ Larger than life and flamboyantly dressed, Evans is an egotistical, overbearing character who sees himself as more of an artist than an artisan.
A man of hidden means who also deals in anything saleable under the guise of “antiques”, the sharp-tongued Evans is driven by lust and other sordid motives. Perhaps this is why his long-standing, long-suffering fiancée Rachel is employed as his assistant, a position that enables her to ensure his wandering hands don’t wander too far and his wandering eye doesn’t wander too wide!
Written by Roy Clarke (Open All Hours, Keeping Up Appearances) join Ronnie Barker, with a fantastically comic Welsh accent, in all six episodes of this BBC comedy classic.
