A welcome repeat
24 December 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This series was first broadcast in August September 1989 on the 50th anniversary of the start of the Second World War but has never been repeated on main terrestrial television in the UK until recently. Perhaps the long time span has made it more enjoyable because I had forgotten how good this was, and that is said from one who has never been particularly enamoured with the either Last of the Summer Wine or the concept of prequels. It is a good quality and very genteel comedy with solid performances from the cast enhanced by good period details and a sharp script. Only Peter Sallis is a well known name and who played Clegg in Last of the Summer Wine ; he now plays his characters father! None of the other cast members are well known and seem to have disappeared.
