The Lovers


Richard Beckinsale – Paula Wilcox 1973
The Lovers was a British television sitcom by Jack Rosenthal, starring Richard Beckinsale and Paula Wilcox as a courting couple, Geoffrey and Beryl. I Was a mismatch between the two, particularly in the area of sex (which Beryl referred to as “Percy Filth”). Beryl was a slightly dizzy character with a penchant for pet names such as “Geoffrey bubbles bonbon”, while Geoffrey, though dreamy, was somewhat rough around the edges, obsessed with taking Beryl to bed. As Beryl, was after a ring on her third finger. Geoffrey, was more keen on losing his virginity.
