All About Me, 2002
All About Me was Jasper Carrott’s second foray into the word of sitcom, his first being “The Detectives”.
The show ran 3 series over 22 episodes between 2002 and 2004.
The ‘me’ in the title refers to Raj, whose thoughts were heard in a voiceover.
The series revolves around a modern family living in the Midlands.
The family comprise: Colin Craddock, a white Brummie builder, his Asian wife Rupinder, Colin’s two sons from his first marriage, Peter and Leo, Rupinder’s half-sister Sima, daughter Kavita and son Raj, a wheelchair user with cerebral palsy.
At the end of the first series Colin and Rupinder have their own child. The third sees the introduction of two new characters called Charles and Miranda, whose attempts at political correctness proves untactful.
