It was Jeremy Lloyd who came up with the title "Grace & Favour" (a pun on both Grace Brothers and also the term for premises which have been granted free of rent). His co-writer David Croft had wanted to call the series "Are You Being Served Too?" See more »
This was an alright show. It was still funny but I think it didn't work because the jokes had been done before and there weren't enough cast members from the original. But some of the episodes were really good and I liked the new continuing subplots that the other show just didn't have. But I guess people got tired of Are You Being Served. I wish they had gotten Trevor Bannister on to guest-star as a guest in the hotel: that would have been really something!!!
