Did You Know?


Gilbert was the latest in a line of 'Cynthia replacements' for Baker to play against: her stage stooge was traditionally a tall, mute man in drag playing her friend Cynthia. Edward Malin's character Walter Tattersall had fulfilled the same function in Nearest and Dearest (1968). See more »

Raucous,crude and very funny to this day!
12 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have just bought the DVD of the first series, a programme I haven't seen since it first aired in 1974 when I was 11! So many of Hylda Baker's catchphrases have stuck with me 'Don't be ricidodolous' 'I can say that without fear of contraception'etc.

It seemed so racy when I watched it with my mum and dad back in 1974,at the age of 11, although of course by todays standards it is quaint more than rude! The main thing is, the programme is still funny, and I have found myself laughing out loud, something I don't do with much of todays so called comedy.

I suppose too many people would find some of the characterisation of the pubs customers offensive, but more fool them for taking life to seriously, after all people are funny!! Recommended for anyone with an open mind and a love of true comedy.
