Another nugget from the Huggetts
8 October 2006 | by (Derby, UK) – See all my reviews

Another nice little entry in this short series (2/4), this one starts with the installation in the Huggetts' semi of that new-fangled contraption, the telephone. Then "little" cousin Di comes to stay for a while, bringing all manner of problems with her.

Various stories unfold concerning the family and friends, the plottiest threads being about Dad and his job as foreman at Campbell's and Jane's vacillating romances. But centre-stage for most of the time was young Diana Dors, well made use of here as decoration, but also showing she had some promising talents ... as a actress too. Mum felt sorry for her but Dad only wanted to give her a helping hand in the right place (or was that foot?). Pet got to sing Walking Backwards, in fact pity there wasn't some more as it was a decent choral arrangement too, whilst even the Royal Wedding got a humorous look-in.

Lovely harmless fluff and pleasant time-filling stuff.
