Three old men from Yorkshire who have never grown up face the trials of their fellow town citizens and everyday life and stay young by reminiscing about the days of their youth and attempting feats not common to the elderly.
Did You Know?
Brian Wilde much preferred working with Director Sydney Lotterby ( who had directed Wilde in Porridge) rather than Alan J.W. Bell due to the difference in directing and visual styles of the two men. Bell liked to shoot in a more cinematic way often using long distance wide shots of the Yorkshire landscape and hills with the actors walking through them playing the scene. Inevitably this meant scenes took a lot longer to set-up ,co-ordinate and shoot much to Wilde's and some other cast member's frustration whereas Lotterby tended to keep things much tighter visually, like a traditional sitcom and worked more quickly.

Why d'you think it is they won't let me go?
You've *been* shot at. Now it's somebody else's turn.
It's because they're ashamed of me. Because I'm scruffy.
I wouldn't say "scruffy". Would you say "scruffy"?
Yes, I'd say "scruffy".
