Re: Grace and Favour
5 September 2005 | by (Park Ridge, IL) – See all my reviews

I've been a long time fan of AYBS and have recently been watching Grace and Favour on one of my PBS stations. It was wonderful to see the cast again, and the addition of the beautiful and talented Fleur Bennett. Her accent and charm really made this show that much better. I recently bought the DVD and watch it often, mostly selecting the scenes where Mavis interacts with Mr. Humphries and the other cast. Chavenage House, where the show was filmed, was a much better setting than the old department store, and I plan to visit next fall and have a good look around. I wish they would've continued the series.

Joe
