Sitcom Heartthrob - Christopher Strauli remembers Only When I Laugh
Jul 03, 2020
MIM

Christopher Strauli was something of a sitcom heartthrob when he starred as the young, rather naive, Norman Binns in Yorkshire Television's hit Only When I Laugh from 1979 to 1983. The show based around three men in hospital also starred James Bolam, Peter Bowles, Derrick Branche and Richard Wilson, long before his Victor Meldrew days. Written by Eric Chappell, it was a huge success with an iconic theme tune. Christopher has been remembering the series with MIM's Ashley Byrne.

The Distinct Nostalgia theme is owned by MIM Productions and composed by Rebecca Applin and Chris Warner.
