I bought this after buying all of the Are You Being Served series which I really enjoyed. This offering wasn't up to that standard - the humour was much more contrived and although I like John Inman II don't think I'd have bought any more if there had been any more series. It was ok to while a away a rainy evening and it raised a smile or two but I much preferred Are You Being Served.

Superb series featuring 3 British comedy greats (John Inman, Josephine Tewson, & Peter Butterworth - also Viviene Johnson). The owner of a chip shop, Neville (John Inman) finds he has a half-sister he never knew about (Josephine Tewson - in real life Inman's cousin) and half ownership of a rock candy factory. He sells his chip shop to pay the banks 30,000 pounds so they won't forclose, only to find they have no sugar and owe the seller another thousand pounds, so they cannot make any rock candy to sell. Written by Vince Powell (writer/co-writer of many great ITV comedies), this show does not diappoint. If you love John Inman in anything, you will love this show. Add Peter Butterworth, Josephine Tewson, and Viviene Johnson and how could you resist this great sitcom. Sadly only 7 episodes were made -- but this is so often the case with UK sitcoms.

Despite what some other reviewers say, I think that this is a very enjoyable series.

It's not for everyone, but I suppose that everyone doesn't like the late John Inman.

But if you are an Inman fan, you will get a good chuckle out of it, as I did.

A good comedy for it's time, it is just a pity only one series was made.

Seven delightfully funny and cheesy episodes with a fair amount of slapstick comedy starring John Inman supported by Josephine Tewson and Peter Butterworth.

The stories are well crafted, the scripts cheesy and fun and there are a good few "Carry On" moments with just the right amount of slapstick comedy. I was genuinely surprised at how much enjoyment this series gave the family. John Inman's "Good Night" scene after the credits was a nice touch.

Seven top quality episodes for a good price, snap this up today as it is a true TV classic!
