Carry On bickering
3 February 2005 | by (Hertford, England) – See all my reviews

Skirt-chasing chauffeur George (wizened dirty old man Sid James) meets his match when his employer hires the formidable Gabrielle Dragon (the scarily ferocious Peggy Mount) as a new housekeeper.

The ATV sitcom ran from 1966-68 for 26 episodes, no small achievement for a programme effectively based on one long mother-in-law joke and James' trademark lecherous cackle.

James and Mount are a fine match and the banter sparking off every locking of horns has lost none of its comedy value.

Meanwhile, John Le Mesurier is at his vague, dry best as the retired colonel who referees their sparring.

It's dated, inevitably, but there're still plenty of laughs in the Odd Couple friction
