One of the best and most underrated BBC sitcoms of the 1990s, '2point4 Children' had a good run from 1991 to 1999, being curtailed by its leading character Gary Olsen's sad demise through cancer in 2000.
Written by Andrew Marshall, '2point4 Children' was one of a number of good BBC sitcoms beginning in the early '90s, with Olsen's Ben Porter character a regular guy, who acts like a big kid when typical teenage son David (John Pickard) is around. Belinda Lang played Ben's frustrated, likeable wife Bill. Pretty and precocious daughter Jenny (Clare Woodgate/Clare Buckfield) and sex mad neighbour Rona (Julia Mills) were the other major characters.
'2point4 Children' did have a propensity to get out of the normal family sitcom loop, having both musical specials, and often strong surreal elements, including a parody of 'The Prisoner', which starred Roger Lloyd Pack.
