Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Created by Alan Melville, the British sitcom The Whitehall Worrier was introduced as "The Mallard Imaginaire," the July 5, 1966 presentation of the BBC anthology Comedy Playhouse. Robert Coote starred as the Right Honourable Mervyn Pugh, an incredibly thickheaded MP. Pugh's stupidities were offset by the comparative brilliance of wife Janet (Moira Lister) and children David (Karl Lanchbury) and Michelle (Celia Hewitt). Lasting six episodes, The Whitehall Worrier was originally telecast from February 17 to July 13, 1967.
