When Ben and Susan Harper sit down with their youngest son, Michael, to reassure him that they're not getting a divorce in series 1, you might wonder why they don't give separation a try. Ben, a dentist, and Susan, the worst cook in the world, are certainly loving, caring parents, they just have a problem showing it. Their kids - Janie, entering that diabolical phase of late-teenage; Nick, full of unworkable plans and irritating good-humour; and Michael, at the manipulative, know-it-all age - don't mince their words either.
Series 1 to 7 of the phenomenally successful family comedy featuring the misadventures of the dysfunctional Harper household.
The first seven series of the BBC's award-winning sitcom My Family charts the trials of Ben Harper, a dentist, his wife Susan and their wayward, insolent children. Robert Lindsay, in his first sitcom since 1977's Citizen Smith, stars as the long-suffering Ben, and Zoe Wannamaker plays Susan, his tour-guide spouse.
