Drosophila? by Martin Cooper

I don't have a key, but these little flies are always known as fruit flies in the family. I think it is a Drosophila. Is it possible to be more specific? Can anyone recommend a key? There are hundreds of them in the house at the moment so it would be a good time to have a closer look at them!
