4.0 out of 5 stars A forgotten gem! 4 Sep 2012

I have vivid memories of watching 'Hallelujah' on the 'Granada Plus' channel as a child, it made me laugh and stood out in my mind. I was happy to find that Network DVD have released both series one and series two. The first series of this wonderful but sadly forgotten sitcom originally aired on ITV back in 1983. Anything with the late, great comedy actress Thora Hird is worth seeing but she is brilliant in this as the Salvation Army Captain Emily Ridley, a lady who means well but often causes much trouble. Thora is joined by Patsy Rowlands (another comedy veteran) and an actress called Roseamund Greenwood, this trio of ladies are posted to a small quiet Yorkshire town, Emily Ridley is convinced that this innocent place is in desperate need of salvation. Episode four is the one that stood in my mind and it's my favourite in the set, an amusing story. But then again, all seven episodes made me laugh. 'Hallelujah' was in my opinion, a quality sitcom and one to look out for if you are a fan of British comedy series. I have yet to see series two but plan to buy it eventually.

I was quite disappointed in this series - no substance. I won't be purchasing Series 2 when it is available.

1.0 out of 5 stars Outdated 12 July 2010
Unfortunately this series is outdated and hasn't stood the test of time unlike so many other British series. Disappointing.
