Reviews

This highly popular Yorkshire Television sitcom stars much-loved TV battleaxe Peggy Mount on robust form as Flora Petty, the scourge of Paradise Lodge a superior residence for retired gentlefolk. Pat Coombs co-stars as Flora's dim-witted sidekick, Cissie, while veteran stage actress Lally Bowers (A Fine Romance) and sitcom regular Diana King are fellow residents Dolly and Mildred, always ready to lend their weight to Flora's campaign of insubordination against proprietress Miss Milton and her staff. Woe betide anyone who tries to take on the fearless Flora: she's old enough to know better, but wise enough not to care! While Waiting for God would revisit the richly comic setting of the retirement home a decade later You re Only Young Twice ran for four series between 1977 and 1981; this release contains the complete first series.

I remember this series first time round, and the dvd has enabled me to enjoy this series once again. It hasn't aged, and is as entertaining as before, good characterisation, acting and casting.
Although the scene is a ladies retirement home, it is the acting and the material that allows the series to become memorable.
For me it was a must have - and I wasn't disappointed -just kept laughing!

It is twee, yes, but it was meant to be. A gentle comedy and the acting was great. Modern 'actors' take note.

You're Only Young Twice: The Complete First Series [DVD]I bought this dvd because my wife wanted it as she watched it years ago on television and said it was funny. 1 wasn't convinced as id never even heard of it. Then i watched it "THIS IS FUNNY".It about these old women in a residential home Peggy mount makes the program and is absolutely brilliant she has got to be one of Britain's funniest women ever. CLASSIC COMEDY well worth the money
