Goodbye Mr Kent, 1982

Goodbye Mr Kent is proof that even with all the right ingredients it doesn’t always go right.

This almost forgotten sitcom aired in the early 1980’s for just seven episodes (one series), after failing to catch on with audiences.


Recently divorced Victoria Jones with young daughter Lucy takes in a boarder to pay the bills.

Her boarder, the wayward and slobbish but never the less charming journalist Travis Kent doesn’t quite turn out the way Victoria hoped for.  Rather than help towards the bills he sponges off her and tries to woo her.
