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.
