Cranky, vain and cheap, Rupert Rigsby (Leonard Rossiter) treats the tenants of his run-down Yorkshire boarding house to regular insults and right-wing palaver, at the same time quietly pining for one of them: the well-educated Miss Ruth Jones (Frances de la Tour). Meanwhile, Miss Jones is carrying her own torch for another tenant, the dapper Philip Smith (Don Warrington), who claims to be descended from African tribal royalty.

Summary of Season 1 (1974) - 1 disc

This hit comedy series from the 1970s may be England's answer to Archie Bunker. Pretentious, parsimonious bigot Rupert Rigsby (Leonard Rossiter) runs a seedy boarding house and loves to insult almost everyone, especially his tenants -- who include shaggy-haired medical student Alan Moore (Richard Beckinsale) and debonair African prince Philip Smith (Don Warrington). All seven episodes from the first series are included.
