Re: Question for the Brits on the board.
It was fairly popular and even has a bit of a cult following in the States thanks to PBS, but I felt it was a show that promoted a very outdated, twee, white, middle-class image of Britain. It was only mildly funny and a total waste of its lead actors' talents. Dame Judi deserved a lot better than that.
Best left-right combination by a German (and that includes Max Schmeling): Steffi Graf. All she did in 1987 was knock Navratilova out of #1 and try to knock Evert out of the sport. (Mike Lupica in "The Best and Worst of Tennis in 1987", World Tennis)
"A couple of years ago, we nicknamed Steffi Graf's forehand 'Jaws'. And that music would go perfectly when she starts running in to the net, swarming on that little ball." (JoAnne Russell, during the 1988 Wimbledon final between Graf and Navratilova)
