Wonderful to see it again!
9 January 2004 | by (uk) – See all my reviews

Sorry! was one of the best comedies of the 80`s! I dont think a lot of 41 year old men could play Timothy Lumsden as well as Ronnie Corbett! Just when you think Timothy is finally getting away from his mother...she`s there! The best thing is that Barbara Lott who played Timothy`s Mother was trying so hard to stop laughing in some episodes!!! Usually 80`s comedies wear a little thin now. I only watched Sorry! today and I was in fits of laughter! I now have the complete set of Sorry! and now my children love it as much as me!!!
