Ronnie Corbett (The Two Ronnies) plays Timothy Lumsden, a part specially written for him, and has turned him into one of the best-loved comic figures on British television. Barbara Lott plays his domineering mother to perfection and his long-suffering father is portrayed by William Moore. Marguerite Hardiman features as Timothys sister, Muriel.
The problem is a delicate one as Tim still lives at home with his parents. His father, who has long since retreated into a world of his own, is not a threat to Timothy, but his mother the domineering, interfering kind has to be viewed more seriously.The trouble is that she simply refuses to recognise the fact that her son is no longer a little boy, but rather a grown man despite his diminutive stature with perfectly normal, if persistently thwarted, drives and instincts. And not wishing to offend his mother, Timothy usually suffers her seemingly well-meaning intentions. It is obvious that she rules not only the house but also Timothy, through a campaign of sustained, yet subtle (and often hilarious), psychological terror tactics!
