The Upper Hand - Complete Series 5 (9 September 1993 to 23 December 1993) [TVRip (XVID)]
Charlie Burrows (Joe McGann) is an ex-professional footballer who has had to give the game up due to injury. His young wife died suddenly and he was left to raise their daughter, Joanna (Kellie Bright), on his own. When Joanna gets into yet another fight, he realizes that he needs to obtain a better way of life for her and takes a job as a housekeeper to a rich and divorced career woman, Caroline Wheatley (Diana Weston). This gives Jo the opportunity to go to a better school and have a female role model in her life.
Caroline is uptight and very repressed. She lives in a wonderful house in Henley with her son, Tom (William Puttock) and her mother, Laura (Honor Blackman) and doesn't want a 'hunk' of a male to be housekeeper even though her mother has already employed him.
Of course as the show progresses we see that Laura chose the right person for the job. Charlie is good for Tom as he needs a father figure and he's also good for Caroline as he gradually loosens her up a bit. The line between employer and employee vanishes rapidly as Caroline comes think of Joanna as the daughter she never had and, although she fights against it, there is also a strong attraction between her and Charlie.
Laura actively tries to get the couple together and is rewarded when, ultimately, they fall in love and finally get married. The Upper Hand is, in fact, the British version of America's own sitcom, Who's The Boss? starring, Tony Danza and Judith Light as the warring housekeeper and boss.
