Never the Twain is a British sitcom that ran for eleven series from 7 September 1981 to 9 October 1991.
It was created by Johnnie Mortimer, and was the only sitcom he ever created without his usual writing partner, Brian Cooke. Mortimer wrote the entirety of the first two series, one episode of the seventh, and five out of six episodes of the eighth, with the rest being mainly written by John Kane and Vince Powell (who wrote the whole of the last three series).
The series starred Windsor Davies (of, "It Ain't Half Hot Mum" fame) and the late Donald Sinden as rival antique dealers, and also co-starred Robin Kermode (later replaced by Christopher Morris), Julia Watson (later replaced by Tacy Kneale), Honor Blackman, Teddy Turner, Derek Deadman, Maria Charles and Zara Nutley.
It was made by Thames Television for the ITV network. Since it finished, it has been repeated a few times on satellite television: first on UK Gold and later on ITV3.
The title is taken from the Rudyard Kipling poem; The Ballad of East and West. The show's theme tune was composed by Jack Trombey and the track was entitled Domino.
As no DVD releases were made these files are good quality captures from 2014 ITV 3 re-runs.
