Product Description

Ronnie Barker’s tight-fisted shopkeeper Arkwright continues to risk amputation rather than replace his death trap of a till. As Nurse Gladys Emmanuel, the owner of an awesome bosom and an old Morris Minor, deflates his amorous advances, Arkwright seeks solace in bullying his over-worked, sexually and socially frustrated nephew and errand boy, G-G-G-Granville.

Contains the following seven episodes:

  • Laundry Blues
    When Nurse Gladys Emmanuel tells Arkwright that he must buy a new washing machine, he is forced to come up with an ingenious plan to keep her happy and his savings undisturbed.
  • The Reluctant Traveller
    Nurse Gladys Emmanuel and Arkwright are finally going to spend the night together at a hotel … with an over-tight money belt.
  • Fig Biscuits and Inspirational Toilet Rolls
    Arkwright’s marketing genius comes to the fore as he tries to shift some over-stocked items.
  • The New Suit
    Arkwright has to buy a new suit – on Nurse Gladys Emmanuel’s say-so.
  • Arkwright’s Mobile Store
    Arkwright proves his ambition by expanding the business … he buys an old ice-cream van.
  • Shedding at the Wedding
    Arkwright’s wedding suit smells of mothballs. Hanging his trousers out of Gladys’ car was never going to be a good idea …
  • St. Albert’s Day
    Arkwright invents a saint’s day so that Granville can check the pockets of a foreign visitor who he suspects of shoplifting.

From the Back Cover

In those few hours that Arkwright can bear to close the shop, his lecherous attentions turn to neighbour, customer and objet d’amour, the voluptuous nurse Gladys Emmanuel. Despite his persistence and some hilariously cunning ruses, Nurse Gladys manages, quite expertly, to keep her shopkeeper fiancé from getting his hands on her comestibles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but no extras 19 Feb 2004
This DVD is 10/10 for laughs but at the start there is a advertisment for other comedy shows available from BBC and there are no extras (series 1 had pilot and profile) series 2 doesn't have the 1982 x-mas special. But otherwise fantastic with scene selection and subtitles

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius! 9 Sep 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Bought Open All Hours - Series One [1976] [DVD],Open All Hours - Series Two [1981] [DVD],Open All Hours - Series Three [1982] [DVD] [1976],Open All Hours - Series Four [1985] [DVD] together as a gift for my son, he loves the humour and I have to say I'm encouraging it! I bought these for him when he was 8 and it's a great, gentle programme to watch together as a family - not much of that around these days! He also loves to watch an episode with his Grandparents when they have chance, it's been a lovely way to create some common ground - LOVE IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Open all hours series 2 28 Jun 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
You can't help but feel sorry for Granville. All his suffering only made better by being thrust against the nurse's breasts.
Arwright's penny pinching leads to his beloved's trying to bring him into the 20th century.

5.0 out of 5 stars Open All Hours 2 5 Sep 2008
The series itself is brilliant, hilariously funny, an absolute classic. Regular guest appearances by the likes of Kathy Staff and Stephanie Cole, along with the superb main cast (Ronnie Barker, David Jason and Lynda Barron) make this comedy unforgettable. However, yet again, as we seem to have had to get used to with the BBC, they've treated one of their best badly. There's no extras whatsoever. Still, to me the series itself is worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic British comedy 9 Jan 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This series was and still is great. Thanks to the British for giving us so many great timeless classic comedy's like Last of the summer Wine, Faulty Towers, Keeping up appearances, Only Fools and Horses, Dad's Army, Yes Minister, The Good Life, etc etc, and the list would go on and on and on.
I know it must be a well worn statement, but they just don't make Programs like this anymore. For all of you older people and the young ones who have not seen some of these classics they are worth watching and all cost very little for quality enjoyment.
