TV Are You Being Served? (BBC-1 28 Aug 2016, Jason Watkins) Published 3 years ago on August 25, 2016 Part of the BBC’s Sitcom Season celebrating 60 years of classic BBC comedies this reboot of 1970’s department store sitcom Are You Being Served is in safe hands being written by Benidorm’s Derren Litten. Picking up where Jeremy Lloyd and David Croft’s classic comedy left off, the show brings Grace Brothers and it’s staff including Mrs Slocombe, Captain Peacock and Mr Humphries, back to life with an all-star cast. When the episode begins it’s 1988 and Young Mr Grace is determined to drag Grace Brothers into, well 1988, but he has a problem on his hands. Mr Humphries, Captain Peacock, Mr Rumbold and Mrs Slocombe all seem to be stuck in another era. A new member of staff, Mr Conway, joins the team – but will he help shake things up or will he just put a pussy among the pigeons? In the end it was quite a surreal experience, the settings and playing were incredibly spot on and Litten’s script completely captured the original scripts to perfection in fact so much so it felt at times like a composite of all the best bits from the series. It did make us laugh though. production details UK / BBC One – JamThis / 1×30 minute episode / Broadcast Sunday 28 August 2016 at 9.00pm Writer: Derren Litten / Executive Producer: Stephen McCrum / Director: Dewi Humphrey cast Jason Watkins as Mr Humphries Sherrie Hewson as Mrs Slocombe John Challis as Captain Peacock Roy Barraclough as Mr Grainger Arthur Smith as Mr Harmon Justin Edwards as Mr Rumbold Niky Wardley as Miss Brahms Mathew Horne as Young Mr Grace, the original Young Mr Grace’s grandson Jorgie Porter as Miss Croft Kayode Ewumi as Mr Conway BBCDavid CroftDerren LittenDewi HumphreyJeremy LloydJoason WatkinsJohn ChallisRoy BarracloughSherrie HewsonSitcomsTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in TV1 day ago This Is Personal: The Hunt for the Yorkshire Ripper (ITV 2000, Alun Armstrong, Richard Ridings) Period crime drama serial.
