Oldshaw, 1929: when you could enjoy a night out at the Theatre Royal, a pint in the interval, a hot pie on the way home - and still have change from a shilling. You could also have an argument with a brewer's dray and end up as a client of Unsworth and Co., Undertakers and Monumental Masons... and be given one of the most disastrous funerals in the long and noble history of undertaking. Thora Hird (Talking Heads, Last of the Summer Wine) brings her inimitable humour to the role of Ivy Unsworth, widow of funeral director Jeremiah, who has been left to run Unsworth and Co. along with her accident-prone nephew, Billy (Christopher Beeny - Upstairs Downstairs). A much-loved comedy series set in a fictional Lancashire mill town, In Loving Memory was a huge commercial success for Yorkshire Television, running for five series between 1979 and 1986; this relase contains the fifth and final series.

Thora Hird's (Ivy Unsworth) comic timing is second to none and her obvious relationship with Chris Beeny as her nephew Billy Henshaw is a joy to see on screen. The addition of Sherrie Hewson as Mary, Billy's new wife creates another dimension to the relationships and it's all to the good. Known these days for "Loose Women", people forget how good an actress Sherrie Hewson is.
Enjoy your comedies of today, but don't forget how effective a gentle, heart-warming comedy can be and buy this DVD.
