Ever the consummate Old Man, Clive Dunn was just 48 when he started as Old Mister Jones in Dad's Army, and just 54 when he played the Old Man of the title of this series. Ronnie Barker fan's may recognise the first episode of this series, since it is very similar to an episode of Barker's excellent series 7 of 1. When BBC chose not to make the pilot into a series the writer took the series to ITC and Clive Dunn replaced Barker. In fairness Ronnie Barker was better, but Clive Dunn is still very funny. All round an excellent British Comedy, I look forward to the second series coming out of DVD (unfortunately there were only 13 episodes made).
