Captain mainwaring in disguise!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pardon the Expression - The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
Absolutely loved this blast from the past. Arthur Lowe is in fine form as the rather genteel and voluble shop manager,much given to literary quotes. Despite the cardboard sets and rather shaky credits,it's a masterclass in comic acting. You can almost see captain mainwaring starting to appear before your very eyes. Viewers can also have fun spotting the well known faces of today who were just starting their career here, many of whom are non speaking extras. Although not 'fall off your chair' funny, with a supporting cast who are adequate,at best,the show is carried along by the brilliance of Arthur Lowe. It's a pleasure to watch. David Williams.
