Ever decreasing circles( Visual )

A delicious situation comedy ? one of the earliest, one of the most oft-forgotten, but unquestionably one of the best. Richard Briers plays the pedantic, officious, but well-meaning Martin Bryce. He lives life in a Quiet English Way, personifies pieces of wood and nails, and views filing as art form. Actually, not art ? that?d be a little too left wing - more a necessary accompaniment to life. Martin runs every society in The Close ? from the Neighbourhood Watch Scheme to the Cricket Club ? keeping him busy, in control and the centre of attention. That is, until Paul Ryman moves in next door. Paul is the original Neil Godwin to Martin?s David Brent; he?s everything Martin isn?t - a Cambridge Cricket Blue, effortlessly charming and has a seemingly infinite number of ?mates?. It is around these unlikely neighbours that the series is based ? with Martin?s long-suffering wife, Anne, somewhere in the middle. This is a wonderfully observed sitcom that?s as good the first time you curl up with it on a Friday night, as it is when you?re laughing at it for the twenty-third time on a drizzly Sunday afternoon. As with other great comedies, the premise is a simple one; a glimpse of ordinary people and the way they live their lives together. And that is largely from where Ever Decreasing Circles derives its power and timeless appeal; we all know a Martin, a Paul or an Anne ? we may even have a little bit of them inside of us. Although naturally, Martins will do as Martin would, and not even think of admitting it
