Pyjama party: Matthew Cottle and Eddie Marsan hope to Get Well Soon
Get Well Soon
6.40pm BBC1 This new sitcom takes us to another age when pleasures were rationed, postcards were saucy and tuberculosis was rife. Written by Ray Galton and John Antrobus, it is based on the story of Galton's meeting with his Hancock and Steptoe writing partner, Alan Simpson, in a TB sanatorium.
Things don't look good for Roy (Matthew Cottle) as his mother (Anita Dobson) dumps him at the sanatorium. With a combination of broad laughs and some downright bizarre characters this is not simple, nostalgic comedy, despite its 1947 setting. This scene-setter parades a deranged RAF officer, a mad vicar and a friendly widow, all providing fertile ground for humour to back up the central characters - two young men on the make.
