Brilliant prequel to The Last of the Summer Wine. The characters and story lines are what you'd expect from this writer, clever, gentle, quirky, amusing, poignant. The music from the era that threads the series was wonderful too. My husband and I've been singing the various songs ever since.
It was an expensive buy, though, because we enjoyed it so much we bought all the 24 series of Last of the Summer Wine in one fell swoop. About to start enjoying those now . . .
