Return of a Classic
5 January 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When I heard of the news about the 10th series late last year. I thought please be as funny as the earlier once and I have to say it was. I just watched the latest episode and what a start with great banter between the sisters and still maintaining the charm of the older series. I'm glad they didn't go over board with the script by trying to force laughs that some try to do and kept the original series at the heart of it.

I don't get the mixed reviews it received from critics but that's always going to happen with a show that's been brought back. I don't think they understand that it's meant to be a bit tongue 'n' cheek, lighten up a bit. Anyway I liked it so that's good enough for me.
