Here Lies Reginald Iolanthe Perrin - Forever Revolting!
10 September 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

The '90's saw the B.B.C. revive a number of famous comedy shows, including two made by I.T.V. - 'Agony Again' and 'Doctor At The Top' - along with 'The Liver Birds' and, of course, this. Whereas these featured the original casts, 'Legacy' was at a disadvantage because Leonard Rossiter passed away in 1984. David Nobbs tried to work around this by making Reggie's death the catalyst for the show's events. Reggie's family and friends must do something really absurd in order to qualify for a share in his will. After a number of failed individual attempts, they combine to try to take over the country, at the head of an army of pensioners. The show was not the disaster critics tried to make out; 'Jimmy', 'C.J.', 'Elisabeth', 'David Harris-Jones', 'Tom' and 'Linda' were strong enough to carry the show. The problem was that Reggie wasn't around to belittle them anymore. It was like watching 'Fawlty Towers' without Basil. Best of the new characters was Geraldine Hackstraw, played by the lovely Patricia Hodge.
