For just over an hour, we are invited to eavesdrop on a dinner party at some country pile.

Our host is a Sloaney type with controlling tendencies. Think of Penelope Keith in The Good Life and you will not be far off.

Much of the time is spent in creating a series of invisibole characters and then building to a climax, after which, rather than the curtain, the hostess reacts diminishing the impact.

Perfidious Lion is a light sitcom with little original thought, although it does give writer / performer Bettine Mackenzie a chance to show off her talents as a comic actress of the extreme variety. A career in TV could beckon?
