And Mother Makes Five...sequel to And Mother Makes Three, starring Wendy Craig and made by Thames, this was an incredibly popular series in the early 1970s. Craig is suitably scatter-brained and this is the underlying theme of the series, highlighting numerous scrapes, misunderstandings and mishaps once Sally Harrison (Redway) remarries. It's gentle comedy, a million miles from today's sitcoms (not that there are too many of those), but its innocence and simple storytelling techniques do deliver a few laughs. I guess I found it refreshing and the non-knowing performances made me think wistfully of more innocent times.
DVD presentation is good, well up to Network's usual high standards, and it's good value for the Amazon price.
Lovely way to spend an evening. Recommended.
