David Jason said the show was "a high-quality piece of work altogether. We owed a lot to the whole team put together." He also said "the idyll it depicted spoke very directly to people - and to people of all ages. It was a kind of television show that was already falling out of favor and which has continued to decline - a program that families watched together. And what they saw was this wonderful loving family, with kids they adored, sitting round at Sunday dinners, piling into the back of a truck and singing...people watched it and thought, "wouldn't we all love a little bit of that, if it were possible?"

A real feel good Show, Making me wish I lived there.
this would have to be my all time favorite show. I paid a fortune to buy the DVD'S and have them shipped to Australia. It's a show that I can watch over and over again and never tire of. I just want to pack up and immigrate to England and Kent. I find it almost hard to believe that this was a made for television family. It must truly reflect a time when things were much simpler. If I could I would transport myself right back there with the Larkin's and I to would never leave. Pam Ferris and David Jason are so convincing as MA and Pa Larkin, that I try to bring some of that into my own children's lives. A show that certainly restores my appetite and good faith ion the world.
