5.0 out of 5 stars and mother Makes Five - Series 1
Those familiar with the preceeding four series of "And Mother Makes Three" will feel quite at home with this follow-up to the end of the previous stage of the tale. The adults have started their married life together and the children are just slightly older and wiser (but not much as the series were all made in quick succession so that they did not "age" too soon) and the...

3.0 out of 5 stars and mother makes 5
Unless there was another version of this programme I must have missed quite a few epesodes back in the 70 s as I remember this as pure "family" entertainment.

This review is from: And Mother Makes Five - The Complete Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Those familiar with the preceeding four series of "And Mother Makes Three" will feel quite at home with this follow-up to the end of the previous stage of the tale. The adults have started their married life together and the children are just slightly older and wiser (but not much as the series were all made in quick succession so that they did not "age" too soon) and the humour is still the same mixture of misunderstandings and chaotic consequences.
Viewers coming to these as an adult after seeing them previously as a child will soon recognise the clever use of the pantomine technique of lines that adults laugh at in a different way but these episodes were made nearly forty years ago and what is discussed in them is nothing to worry about compared to what I overhear children saying every working day in a secondary school rated on multiple occasions as "Excellent" by Ofsted. Remember also that the youngest cast member has since become an Oscar winner for his work on "Shakespeare In Love".
I cannot wait for the subsequent series I have ordered from Amazon to be delivered.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great 1970s nostalgia, 25 July 2012

And Mother Makes Five...sequel to And Mother Makes Three, starring Wendy Craig and made by Thames, this was an incredibly popular series in the early 1970s. Craig is suitably scatter-brained and this is the underlying theme of the series, highlighting numerous scrapes, misunderstandings and mishaps once Sally Harrison (Redway) remarries. It's gentle comedy, a million miles from today's sitcoms (not that there are too many of those), but its innocence and simple storytelling techniques do deliver a few laughs. I guess I found it refreshing and the non-knowing performances made me think wistfully of more innocent times.

DVD presentation is good, well up to Network's usual high standards, and it's good value for the Amazon price.

Lovely way to spend an evening. Recommended.

I am glad they brought this series out after they brought out And Mother Makes Three', Wendy Craig plays this part so well, this series one starts off really well, lots of laughs and giggles i must say, all blends in well. i thoughly recommend this dvd and all comedy fans will love it.
