A Fine Romance Fan Tributes
5 Dennis Woodbury from Phoenix, Arizona: Another example of why some English sitcoms endure. Dench, of course, is very good but it is the way all characters sync together in this that makes it work.
4 Jay Ashby from Australia: I loved 'A Fine Romance' - it was very understated humour and beautifully acted by real life husband and wife team Judi Dench and Michael Williams. My favourite scene was the one where they tipped water over one another, which doesn't sound like understated humour at all. Love it!
3 ellie from australia: Love anything Judi Dench does - have complete 'As time goes by' set, would like to purchase 'A Fine Romance'. Can you tell me where it is available...?
2 Antonella from Italy: Unfortunately, I've never seen this sitcom in my country. I'm waiting for DVD "A Fine Romance - The Complete First Series" and I'm so curious! I have bought it because of dear Richard Warwick but I've loved also Judy Dench in many movies, like "Chocolat", so I'm impatient to see it! Bye bye!
1 Gary Gilbert from USA: A Fine Romance is by far my favorite British Sitcom. I love Judi Dench, and what also made the show superb was the way all of the four main characters (Phil, Helen, Mike and Laura) all blended together. I wish the show had gone on longer! I recently purchased the entire series on DVD and enjoy it every single day! Hats off to Bob Larbey!
