Thora Hird at her very best.
8 August 2004 | by (England) – See all my reviews

When i was a nipper i used to watch this particular British comedy every week. It's about an Aunt (Thora Hird) and her nephew (Christopher Beeny) who run an undertaker business in Lancashire in the twenties and thirties. Thora Hird plays a religious, old fashioned over bearing and bossy woman who is always nagging at her nephew Billy. Billy is in his late twenties or early thirties and is single because he is an undertaker and that kind of occupation isn't what you would call a chick magnet so he always has trouble getting and keeping girlfriends especially with his Aunt Ivy on the prowl ready to split up any tongue action she might catch Billy doing. Infact she would rather not have him with any women PERIOD! And that is where the humour lies, Billy sneaking around behind her back and if i can remember rightly he does more than snog a few women ;o)

'In Loving Memory' is very similar to 'Last Of The Summer Wine' and does have that gentle approach to it but it isn't as goody goody as 'Last Of The Summer Wine'. Thora Hird is truly fantastic and funny with her wise cracking quips and the expressions she makes when Billy gets the best of her. I havn't seen this for a few years because it's been awhile since it was repeated. It may be showing somewhere on Sky but i havn't come across it. I don't think i've seen the original pilot so that's something for me to watch out for. If anybody has a chance to watch 'In Loving Memory' then i advise you do so especially if you like watching British comedies.
