That’s My Boy is a British sitcom starring Mollie Sugden that aired on ITV from 23 October 1981 to 4 April 1986.
The series was written and created by Pam Valentine and Michael Ashton, who later wrote My Husband and I (1987-88), which also starred Mollie Sugden. It was produced for the ITV network by Yorkshire Television.
When Ida Willis (Mollie Sugden) gets a new job as housekeeper to Dr. Robert Price (Christopher Blake) and his wife Angie (Jennifer Lonsdale), she moves into their London flat and soon discovers that Robert is the son she gave up for adoption when he was a baby, and she proceeds to call him Shane, the name she gave him when he was born. Other characters include Ida’s troublesome brother Wilfred (Harold Goodwin) and Robert’s adoptive mother Mrs. Cecilia Price (Clare Richards), an upmarket widow with whom Ida doesn’t actually get on. In the fourth series they move up north to the Yorkshire village of Little Birchmarch, where Ida befriends Robert’s mousy receptionist, Miss Parfitt (Deddie Davies).
