This British sitcom starred Robin Bailey as henpecked librarian Henry Nunn. The hero's dismal existence brightened considerably when he learned that he had inherited a house in the town of Stackley, formerly owned by his late Uncle Crispin. Since it was in this house that Henry spent the happiest years of his life, he jumped at the chance of moving back in -- and, incidentally, welcomed the opportunity to leave his dead-end job and his nagging wife Sybil (Pamela Manson) behind. The rest of the series dealt with Henry's efforts to come to terms with the somewhat provincial citizens of Stackley, and vice versa. Sorry, I'm a Stranger Here Myself was broadcast by ITV in 13 half-hour increments; the first batch of seven was shown from June 15 to July 27, 1981, while the final six aired from April 13 to May 18, 1982.
