A middle-aged British couple are scheduled to go off on a holiday cruise in the Mediterranean. The husband, a businessman staunch in his beliefs, settled in his ways, with a dryly humorous approach to life in general, and a Britisher's inbred disdain for foreign travel, decides they will settle for a British seaside holiday. Meanwhile, back in their London suburb, their daughter and her fiancée have grown tired of their long engagement and have decided to 'play marriage.' The parents return to find that some changes have been made in their absence. Written by Les Adams <>

Good cast in rather stagy and staid drama
29 December 2013 | by (london) – See all my reviews

It has been mentioned in another review that there is no mention of World War 2.I wonder if it was the intention to set this in the thirties.The point is that all of the beating around the bush about sex must have seemed very tame if not dated to a generation that had just emerged from a world war.Where the attitudes to sex and marriage had been radically altered.Where sex before marriage had become much more the accustomed thing.So to see the main couple go through the film bickering about it must surely have seemed strange if not totally unrealistic.Also odd to see Jimmy Hanley spurning his real life wife,Dinah Sheridan for an older woman.Gordon Harker gives his usual first rate performance.One final point,it is all very well to have postcards sent from foreign destinations but who posted them abroad?
