I like that programme also but it is lacking something.I really liked Ever Decreasing Circles I am sure there is a Martin Bryce in every town and I actually know someone who portrays his traits . My neighbour and his wife have a running battle over something so simple it matches that of Martin and Anne regarding the telephone where Anne puts the receiver one way and Martin turns it the other way , a running gag that appears in pretty much every episode . With my neighbours its the Kitchen roll . Margaret puts it on the holder so you'd pull the roll left to tear off a strip , Ian on finding it turns it around so you'd pull it right to tear a strip , it drives him mad . However, I have friends who absolutely detest EDC and cannot for the life of them think why I enjoy it .
