Third and even funnier series!
on 12 October 2007
This was the third season of 'On The Buses' and the first to be done in colour. It kicks off with an hilarious episode and many of this series are extremely funny! This was also the first season to feature a massive bumper of thirteen episodes - the previous two consisting of only a mere handful!
The Inspector's niece turns up twice in this set, and to Stan's horror, almost becomes related to 'Blakey'! Stan's mum (played by the amazing Doris Hare) gets some more scope to use her talent when she plays the field and starts courting again! She dresses and looks a million dollars - bearing in mind that Doris was already an old lady back then, and went on to live another 32 years!! This set includes possibly one of the funniest ever episodes where 'Blakey' gets stuck in a side car in 'The Squeeze'!
It was a great pity that Glen Whitter who played 'Chalkie' did not get a bigger role. He makes a few small appearances - but what a handsome guy!!
For some reason, most if not all of the Ad. Bumpers are missing in this set - unlike Network to leave them out.
