5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Clive Dunn series
Ever the consummate Old Man, Clive Dunn was just 48 when he started as Old Mister Jones in Dad's Army, and just 54 when he played the Old Man of the title of this series. Ronnie Barker fan's may recognise the first episode of this series, since it is very similar to an episode of Barker's excellent series 7 of 1.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better
Having seen the pilot on Ronnie Barker's Seven of One, I was curious to see how it would work as a full series, with Clive Dunn.While he is a god comic actor, I don't think he has the range of Ronnie Barker.Also I don't think the writing is as good as it could have been.

Ever the consummate Old Man, Clive Dunn was just 48 when he started as Old Mister Jones in Dad's Army, and just 54 when he played the Old Man of the title of this series. Ronnie Barker fan's may recognise the first episode of this series, since it is very similar to an episode of Barker's excellent series 7 of 1. When BBC chose not to make the pilot into a series the writer took the series to ITC and Clive Dunn replaced Barker. In fairness Ronnie Barker was better, but Clive Dunn is still very funny. All round an excellent British Comedy, I look forward to the second series coming out of DVD (unfortunately there were only 13 episodes made).

Clive Dunn's portrayal of Sam Cobbet as The Old Man in question is excellent and a true reflexion of many of us,. as we get older and are often fixed in our ways.It is my intention to show this DVD to my kids to prepare them for my possible arrival at a future date.I found this DVD topical and we can all learn from it.Enjoy ,It may be you ????

It's not a Bad series, and maybe the second series will be an improvement, I will probably buy it soon, as they are cheap on Amazon.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish, 27 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Old Man - Series 1 - Complete [DVD] [1974] (DVD)
The pilot with Ronnie Barker showed potential, but this series was 'rubbish', no wonder it didn't last and hadn't heard of it until I saw the pilot.
Definitely not recommended.
