I saw 'In Loving Memory' many years ago and would love to see it again but it never seems to figure in the TV listings, nor seems to be available in either Video or DVD format. Does anyone know where, or indeed when this ageless and most superb comedy will again be available for viewing. The plot, centred on the misadventures of a Yorkshire undertaker, is so well written, and humorously delivered by Thora Hird
as Ivy Unsworth, the undertaker's widow, Christopher Beeny - as Billy
Henshaw, her hapless nephew and Colin Farrell as Ernie Hadfield, his wayward friend. I'm certain that any re-run this hilarious and timeless series would be most eagerly taken up and much appreciated by members of the viewing public.
