Over the Rainbow (Sun, C4):

'I have a feeling that Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais may have struck that pot of gold with this gutsy new musical sit-com.' Pam Francis, Today.

'The sense of deja vu pervading Over the Rainbow was so strong it amounted almost to a mystical experience. It sports an old-fashioned duo - Neil and Spence - that makes any halfway sentimental comedy-lover openly pine and snivel for the days of Bob and Terry and Fletch and Godber.' Lynne Truss, Times.

'Angeline Ball is one of those actresses who would be sexy in a bit part in Ibsen and, in a pert script like this, is quite irresistible.' Max Davidson, Daily Telegraph.
