Sorry, I'm a Stranger Here Myself is a British sitcom that aired for two seasons from 15 June 1981 to 18 May 1982. It was co-created by actor David Firth and Shelley and It Takes a Worried Man creator Peter Tilbury. The first series was co-written by Firth and Tilbury, and the second one by Firth alone.

It starred Robin Bailey, David Hargreaves, veteran Anglo-Jordanian actor Nadim Sawalha (who had also guest starred in a few episodes of Shelley), Diana Rayworth and Christopher Fulford.

It was made by Thames Television for the ITV network.


The show revolved around librarian Henry Nunn (played by Bailey), who lived with his wife Sybil in Datchet, Berkshire. He is henpecked by his wife, who seems only interested in sitting in front of the TV, and whose face is never seen on screen, only being represented by a waving arm (belonging to Pamela Manson).

The frustrated Henry then receives on the day of his 60th birthday an inheritance from his late Uncle Crispin of a neat sum of money, and, even better, ownership of the house where he was born and spent his glorious youth, situated in Stackley, a fictitious Black Country town. So Henry quits his job and makes the move northwards.

Unfortunately for him, when he arrives at Stackley he will find himself immediately at odds with his neighbours: Tom (played by Hargreaves), a 'red under the bed' union shop steward and his wife Doreen (played by Rayworth); and Mumtaz (played by Sawalha), the Asian owner of the corner shop and who has a fondness for curry. Even worse, his house is squatted by Alex (played by Fulford), a green-haired punk.

The essence of the show was the lack of communication between the Henry and the other characters, and it was serialised, each episode following off from the previous one.
