5.0 out of 5 stars More good old-fashioned comedy!, 27 Aug 2007
By 
FAMOUS NAME (UNITED KINGDOM) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)   
This review is from: Nearest And Dearest - Series 2 [DVD] [1968] (DVD)
This is the second season of the ever popular 'Nearest And Dearest'. By this second batch of episodes, this comedy had become well and truly established with high figure viewing.

Another five hilarious episodes here, including more appearances from stars and famous faces such as; Jack Watling, Ronald Adam, Charles Lloyd-Pack, Bill Dean (Brookside), Peter Butterworth (Carry Ons) and a young and attractive John Savident (Coronation Street)

In a couple of these episodes, Jimmy Jewel appears to have darkened his hair and looks quite attractive in some shots and somewhat younger. Jimmy Jewel was a marvellous actor - being the opposite of his character role - being quietly spoken and gentlemanly in real life. A good example of this can be seen in rare interview footage in a later DVD release included in bonus material. Madge Hindle has become more settled in her character as 'Lily', and considering she was playing a part more than forty years older than she was at the time, makes it an outstanding feat indeed!

As with the first season (see my review for that) another two episodes ('Wish You Were Here' and 'All You Wish Yourself') were borrowed to form part of the coming movie spin-off of 1972.

There are no bonus 'extras' with this second season.

The item arrived promptly at a good price. These old TV series are gems and a pleasure to still be able to watch in this day and age.

Good old fashioned, laugh out loud, comedy.
Hylda Baker never fails to make me laugh, with her endless malaprops.
