A mini-cab business operating from a rundown office in London, Roger, Roger, written by John Sullivan (Only Fools and Horses), tells the tales of the struggling Cresta Cabs, that are as unreliable as the people who work there. The owners, Sam and Dexter, have built up the company over the years, but lately things have been going steadily downhill. Dexter has suffered a nervous breakdown leaving stressed-out Sam desperately trying to keep his employees in line whilst promoting - in his opinion - the good name of the company. However, the business would have sunk a long time ago if it wasn't for the efforts of Sam's right-hand woman, Reen (Pippa Guard).

Possibly one of the most underrated and finest comedies ever written. Fabulous cast, comprising mainly of misfits, dreamers and losers, who just gel together perfectly under the guidance of Sam and Dex. Some fantastic comedy moments such as the mix up with the music at Dex's funeral, with the theme tune from Minder blasting out instead of the theme tune from The Bodyguard. And Basils dates at the Golden Rickshaw are cringingly embarrassing. Plenty of touching moments too, the sadness that Sam feels due to his wife's Alzheimer's, and the sexual feelings he has for Reen. A superb understated piece of humour which lasted 3 series, probably enough before running out of steam and finishing on a high as all good comedies should do.
