Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The British sitcom Side By Side was set in a close-knit neighborhood in Kingston-Upon-Thames. The focus was on a pair of contentious next-door neighbors: married family man Vince Tulley (Gareth Hunt) and widowed mother Gilly Bell (Louisa Rix). Gilly disliked the fact that Vince was always "improving" his property with gaudy additions, while Vince disliked Gilly because she constantly nagged him. Meanwhile, Katie (Mia Fothergill) and Terry (Alex Walkinshaw), the teenaged kids of the two combatants, managed to get along famously. Also seen was Julia Deakin as Vince's wife Stella. The 13 half-hour episodes of Side By Side were shown by BBC1 in two clusters, from April 27 to June 1, 1992 and from February 18 to April 1, 1993.
