Hampton Court was an Australian situation comedy series produced by Gary Reilly Productions in 1991.
The series was a spin-off of Hey Dad...! with the link being the inclusion here of Julie McGregor reprising her role of Betty Wilson. She continued to play that role in Hey Dad while this series was in production. Originally the lead character was meant to be Nudge but Christopher Truswell wanted to move on to different TV projects, so the character was changed to Betty Wilson.
The situation of Hampton Court involved four men living in a block of flats where they end up looking after a baby. Two women, including Betty, live next door and join the ongoing attempts to keep the baby secret from their meddling landlord, Mr. Colloudos (Roy Billing), a Greek immigrant, who enforces a strict no-babies rule in the building.
Others in the cast included Danielle Spencer, Maxine Klibingaitis and Adam Willits.
Robert Hughes appeared in 2 episodes.
Only a moderate ratings success, the program was not renewed beyond its initial series of 13 half-hour episodes.
Famous quotes containing the words court and/or hampton:
“As to Don Juan, confess ... that it is the sublime of that there sort of writing; it may be bawdy, but is it not good English? It may be profligate, but is it not life, is it not the thing? Could any man have written it who has not lived in the world? and tooled in a post-chaise? in a hackney coach? in a Gondola? against a wall? in a court carriage? in a vis a vis? on a table? and under it?”
—George Gordon Noel Byron (17881824)
“To seduce a woman famous for strict morals, religious fervour and the happiness of her marriage: what could possibly be more prestigious?”
—Christopher Hampton (b. 1946)
