Duty Free may only have run for 22 episodes, but the Yorkshire TV series remains one of the most popular sitcoms of the last 30 years. And now it’s back, complete with most of the original cast, in a new stage version, which tours to the King’s next week.

Written by Eric Chappell and Jean Warr, Duty Free aired from 1984 to 1986. It charted an ill-fated holiday romance. When working class David and Amy met upper-middle class Robert and Linda holidaying at the San Remo in Spain, their differences were immediately apparent. But opposites were proven to attract and a most unlikely romance developed.
