5.0 out of 5 stars a gentle comedy 1 Dec 2009
Format:DVD
In Loving memory is a very funny but gentle comedy that takes you back to a world now gone,
where people had respect for older people and Ivy reigns supreme. She is always in charge,
in spite of Billy's often thwarted attempts to stand up to her. Underlying his wish to be
independent is a deep affection for Aunty Ivy, and she is very fond of him. It is easy to
watch, and in spite of the story being set in a funeral parlour, is funny and feel-good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comedy at it's best 4 Nov 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Wonderful, hilarious, one of the best. They certainly don't make them like this anymore. The characters are great and the story lines are funny. Undertaking is not as dull as you might think. Ha ha ha

5.0 out of 5 stars I used to watch this with my grandma 19 Jun 2009
By snowman
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am so happy that these old series' from the 70's are available on DVD. It is simple humour, some double entendre, but nevertheless good honest laughs. I have been waiting a long time for this series. Thora is an absolute delight, and whatever happened to Christopher? Hats off to a great series, when is series 2 out?

It is great to see this series again and much awaited. Thora Hird and Christopher Beeney make a great team in this very funny series. Thora at her best! She is greatly missed and this series is a great tribute to her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gentle comedy about a serious subject
Always enjoyed this programme, even though today it may be considered a bit old-fashioned. It provides some gentle humour about a serious life experience.
