Executive Producer: Tony Wolfe / Theme Music: Denis King / Producers: John Henderson(season 1) , Johnny Goodman(season 2) / Director: John Henderson

Given that Maureen Lipman has long been one of the UK’s most familiar faces she has never really had too many chances to headline her own material; There was Agony in the late 70′s of course and then there was About Face, from 1989 and again in 1991 which allowed Lipman room to excel in 12 one off individual comedies written by some major names indeed, including the likes of Lipman’s husband Jack Rosenthal as well as [...]

Writer: Roy Clarke / Director: Dewi Humphreys

Series: Still Open All Hours / Season 1 Episode 6 (of 6)

The first season of this revival of the 1970’s classic comes to a close with this sixth and final episode. No word yet on whether it will be back for me. It’s gentle easy going family fare and quite frankly we need that at times.

In this episode Granville becomes convinced that the shop is haunted by the ghost of Arkwright. Meanwhile a real life ghost from the past turns up to stir things up in the street.

cast David Jason as Granville Lynda Baron as [...]

Still Open All Hours Episode 1 (BBC-1 26 Dec 2014 with David Jason and James Baxter)

UK / BBC-1 / 1×30 minute episode / Broadcast Friday 26 December 2014 @ 6.25pm

Writer: Roy Clarke / Director: Dewi Humphreys

Series: Still Open All Hours / Season 1 Episode 1

Following on from last years pilot episode Still Open All Hours is back from a full six part series, David Jason in fine form as miserly shopkeeper Granville who not only inherited the corner shop from his Uncle but also apparently all his mannerisms and idiosyncratic ways with customers.

It’s almost like a return to 1976 with only Granville’s go ahead son Leroy to bring the modern day into proceedings. In this first episode it’s Valentine’s Day and a new [...]

Series: Playhouse / Series 8 Episode 28

Drama. Downbeat study of two elderly cancer patients suffering in hospital. Over the time, the duo (one of whom is an ex-university lecturer and the other a working class former salesman), who initially don’t like each other, develop a strong respect for one another.

Not an easy to watch production by any means, in fact its a pretty [...]
