There's no doubt that cheeky Vince still has a hold on Penny's affections in John Sullivan's highly successful comedy series. Insisting that they would remain 'just good friends' but with emotions resurfacing a classic love-hate, on-off relationship is (once again) established. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. Written by John Sullivan (Only Fools and Horses Citizen Smith) this is a classic story of love lost and found where the question on everyone's lips is will Vince and Penny remain just good friends'?

Nicholas’ Vince has a touch of the Del Boy about him, Sullivan not always making it clear if he is the cad he often appears, which has the effect of making him a curiously unsympathetic leading man.When you watch it now, you can see and observe Penny's mother portrayed as the narcissist she is—wonderfully played by the late Sylvia Kay. Just Good Friends: Series 1-3 All 24 episodes of the BBC sitcom charting the problematic relationship between Vince (Paul Nicholas), an East End bookmaker, and Penny Warrender (Jan Francis), an upmarket girl from Chipping Ongar. While the show seemed to reach a natural end with Penny leaving the country in series two, audiences demanded a happier ending and it was brought back for another series and a very odd Christmas special.

With her first marriage only recently over Penny decides it best to keep her feelings in check when she bumps into her old boyfriend Vince - especially since Vince left her standing at the altar alone on their wedding day 7 years before.

Written by John Sullivan (Only Fools and Horses, Citizen Smith), this is a classic story of love, lost and found, where the question on everyone’s lips is will Vince and Penny remain ‘just good friends’?Insisting that they would remain 'just good friends' a classic love-hate, on-off relationship is (again) established. Thanks to the central conceit that the couple were once engaged and are trying to reconcile their differences, Sullivan is forced to reiterate this fact at least once per episode, but he’s saved by a barrage of genuinely funny one-liners and occasionally poignant moments, particularly between Penny and her mother, the terrific Sylvia Kay. We also sell a wide range of refurbished Mobile Phones and Tech from major brands like Apple, Samsung, Sony, Microsoft and much more. For example, Vince meets one of Penny's other suitors, a highly trained army officer, in a pub and bravely stands up for her, offering to take the man outside for a fight he freely admits he will lose. Both are sharp, funny people who haven't found their other relationships anywhere near as much fun (Vince is quick with the one-liners; when asked if he knows what a vegan is: "Absolutely, I never miss an episode of Star Trek"), or as much trouble.

She’s a real bunny boiler hell bent on not just splitting up Vince and Penny but taking half his fortune. Whether you're looking for a specific series/season, or a complete DVD box set collection, then we can do the hard work for you!Products labelled '*item fulfilled by Exertis on behalf of hmv' will be supplied to you directly by Exertis via their approved couriers. Paul Nicholas and Jan Francis are outstanding in their roles as Vince - the cockney, unreliable, Jack-the-lad with a witty one-liner for every occasion - and Penny - the posh, prim and proper lady. Exacerbating Vince and Penny’s predicament are both sets of parents, Vince’s, Les and Rita, are all leopard print and Brylcreem, whilst Penny’s, Daphne and Norman, are quite the opposite, wine tasting and twin set types. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. There are one or two of the plot lines that aren’t very believable and some of the characters are a bit OTT but overall I can strongly recommend this box set.
