This duo of sparkling Thames comedies provided an early hit for BAFTA-winning comedienne Wendy Craig, showcasing her talents as a harassed, well-meaning but scatterbrained young widow doing her best to bring up two rambunctious sons....And Mother Makes Three sees Sally Harrison not only keeping an eye on sons Simon and Peter but also conducting an on-off romance with antiquarian bookseller David Redway; ...And Mother Makes Five hilariously charts Sally's continuing tribulations, as she and the boys adapt to sharing their life with David and his rather reserved daughter, Jane. The combined casts include Tony Britton, Patricia Routledge and future Oscar winner David Parfitt, with several episodes written by Wendy Craig; both series are produced and directed by distinguished sitcom veteran Peter Frazer-Jones. This set brings together both complete series for the first time.

After major success in films and then the classic BBC TV comedy Not in front of the children where she played scatter brained housewife Jennifer Corner until 1970, Wendy Craig switched character and family and moved Channel to ITV for this brilliant comedy.
Continuing the scatty housewife vein Wendy began this new series in 1971 with a series created and including stories written by Richard Waring the creator of her previous series Not in Front of the children. Other writers include Peter Buchanan, Peter Robinson, and Carla Laine There is some excellent writing throughout both sets of series.
This time though, left with two young sons Simon (Robin Davies) and Peter, (David Parfitt) when her husband dies, scatty housewife Sally Harison takes a job at a Vets surgery. She works for Mr Campbell (George Selway) and often gets into a muddle as she daydreams and puts more attention into her home life. She struggles through daily mishaps in traditional farcical sitcom fashion, calling for help from her Auntie Flo who she persuades to join the household. Auntie is played by Valerie Lush who created a good supporting character here that adds to the feel of a nice little family unit.
The first series builds gently as we get to know the characters. This is a gentle comedy with good funny moments that add a positive tone to the innocence of the stories. As we get into later series the comedy gets stronger and there is plenty of crazy farce. All the characters are likeable and the series now has the added feature of its Retro early 1970s style.Read more ›

Loved this show as a kid and this set brought back those memories. Some would say it's dated, but there are still some great laughs in there. A classic Brit comedy.Published 17 months ago by Conesuala
