Citizen Smith actor to star in sitcom

television

Vintage stars Robert Lindsay and Maureen Lipman are appearing in a new sitcom set in an antiques shop.

Lindsay (right), who played revolutionary Wolfie Smith in the 1970s' hit Citizen Smith, will play shop owner Rupert Bull while Lipman plays one of his staff.

The three-part series, called Bull, will be broadcast on Gold later this year.

The channel's commissioning editor, Simon Lupton, said: "Whether Rupert Bull and his clueless staff are trying to restore Faberge eggs, value Edwardian ball bearings or work on luring in new customers with a creepy window display of dead animals, it always ends in hilarious disaster."
