Harry Worth was the ever misunderstood man, and this series which followed earlier wiped others, shows him at his bumbling best. It starts off with Harry being the most incompetent brush salesman in history, his sales pitch is laughable and the results of it are miserable failure. These things do not dissuade Harry as he carries on regardless and through his endless attempts to sell his wares he meets his new landlady and the beginning of an entirely new path in disasters caused by simple misunderstandings.
Harry is always the gentleman and never once catches on to the confusion and mayhem he creates when he sets out to do good for himself and his fellow man. A truly soft comedy series with great charm and a few good belly laughs thrown in for good measure. Harry Worth was a genius, who truly defined this form of comedy, none have ever bettered him and this series stands out as a genre that has sadly been forgotten.

Trivia: George Layton one of the writers was also a comedic star in his own right, having featured in the "Dr. In the House" series and appearing also in "It ain't half hot mum" as well. His writing some might say being miles better than his acting, the sympathetic treatment of this series being some of his best work.
This episode: Harry looks to his doctoras a character reference for his landlady, insanity prevails.
The quality of these rips is not perfect, but they are eminently watchable and are a real joy to view.
