4.0 out of 5 stars AND MOTHER MAKES ME LAUGH, 26 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: And Mother Makes Three - The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
'And Mother Makes Three' is one of those cosy middle-class comedies which were so prevalent in the 1970s. Wendy Craig was equally adept at serious roles, but I think she is most fondly remembered for her dotty-mother character in this series, the follow-up 'And Mother Makes Five', 'Butterflies' and the earlier series 'Not In Front Of The Children'.
Sally Harrison is a 30-something widow with two children who shares her house with her auntie Flo and works as a secretary for a veterinary surgeon. She invariably gets herself in a muddle with chaotic results and it is all great fun. As the series progresses, she meets and falls in love with widower David Redway ( played by Richard Coleman ) who just happens to live next door. It seems a pity in a way, because there is then less interaction between Sally and her boys, but there are still plenty of laughs to be had.
Robin Davies, who plays her older son Simon, is probably familiar to most of us as Carrot in the classic children's TV series 'Catweazle', but he has appeared in many television series since. David Parfitt, who plays her younger son Peter, gave up acting after 'And Mother Makes Five' and went on to become a very successful film producer with such titles as 'The Madness Of King George' ( 1994 ) and 'Shakespeare In Love' ( 1998 ).
All 26 episodes of 'And Mother Makes Three' are included here and the quality couldn't be better. Very pleasant viewing and great nostalgia.
