Sadly This is a Forgotten Gem!
30 July 2004 | by (S.W England, Plymouth,) – See all my reviews

This sitcom is hardly ever repeated and also only lasted a short time of episodes 1 series.

Josephine Tewson before hand teamed up in the Two Ronnies which Ronnie was part of,and the chemistry between them on screen was absolutely superb.

Clarence on the other hand is a small sitcom in length that is really a superb one.It is about a short sighted removal man whos escapades provides laughs.

It is a must see! Pray and hope a DVD release occurs soon!

9.3/10
