Grace And Favour (BBC-1 1992-1993, Mollie Sugden, John Inman)

In Are You Being Served sequel Grace and Favour, Grace Brothers closes and the staff finds that their pension money was used by Young Mr. Grace to buy the run-down Millstone Manor house. Young Mr. Grace has now passed away from a heart attack brought on by his nurse, Miss Lovelock, so the house has been made into a hotel run by Mr. Rumbold. The staff has no option but to try and run it themselves.

Getting a new hotel up and running proves to be a much more difficult task than the ex-shopworkers had originally expected of course.

They are helped (or hindered) by the caretaker, Maurice Moulterd (Billy Burden) and his daughter Mavis (Fleur Bennett).

Grace and Favour was made seven years after the end of Are You Being Served but most of the major characters returned. Although the location had changed nothing else had.

The real life Millstone Manor was Chavenage House in Gloucestershire.

The series was known as Are You Being Served Again in the US.
