I bought as a gift for my aunt it was one of her favourite programmes, and as she new lives in a retirement apartment herself she likes it even more and has shared the viewing with her friends. Will buy further series as occasions arise.
A very funny look at life, an earlier version of Waiting for God or One Foot in the Grave set in a retirement home.

So full of nostalgia for me - being allowed to stay up to watch this comedy - so very funny in that very staged style of the time.

Genuine and good quality DVD. It is also a very good price. I was slightly disappointed with the delivery times. Despite both this and season 4 being ordered at the same time, one arrived very far after the other, almost leaving me concerned it would arrive at all. But as I say, in terms of the actual DVD, it is new, taken care of and worth the purchase.

If you have never seen this series it is quite simply WONDERFUL. It is totally inoffensive, gentle, and very sweet. I remember this when I was growing up and I really loved Pat Coombs who plays Cissy Lupin. She was so dizzy and played it so well. Battle axe Flora is equally so well played by Peggy Mount. All of these characters were and still are totally believable, real and for me very special. I would happily have had a retired for home for gentlefolk if I had ladies such as these.

This is laugh out loud humour, not vulgar, not offensive just real funny lines and ladies. Rather like In Loving Memory with Thora Hird (1920's) except this is more modern day (1970's). You can buy this for anyone who loves old fashioned british humour and you won't go wrong. There is no swearing it wont make you cringe and you can watch it quite safely in the company of anyone.

How I miss these marvellous ladies of comedy. There can never be replaced.
