Side by Side is a British sitcom starring Gareth Hunt and Louisa Rix that was broadcast for two series from 1992 to 1993. It was written by Richard Ommanney, who had also written Three Up, Two Down.




Vince Tulley is a successful and relatively wealthy plumber who lives in Kingston upon Thames in Surrey, with his wife Stella. He enjoys adding bizarre and unusual features to both the inside and outside of his house, including a windmill and mock Acropolis. His neighbour, Gilly Bell, is recently widowed and bringing up her daughter Katie. Gilly hates Vince's additions as she feels he is bringing down the tone of the neighbourhood. Terry Shane, Vince's nephew and assistant, has a love-hate relationship with Katie.


Series One had six episodes, which aired weekly from 27 April until 1 June 1992. Series Two had seven episodes, which aired weekly from 18 February until 1 April 1993.
