Did You Know?


The title was a reference to the music hall song and Will Hay film Oh, Mr. Porter! (1937) and a modified version was sung at the end titles by Su Pollard: "Oh, Dr. Beeching what have you done? There once were lots of trains to catch, but soon there will be none, I'll have to buy a bike, 'cos I can't afford a car, Oh, Dr. Beeching what a naughty man you are!" See more »

Reet good...
2 February 2004 | by (Yorkshire, England) – See all my reviews

Thats Yorkshire for right good, and it was, l have all the episodes on tape and l watch them over and over again, given more time this would have been a classic sit com, as it is it`s a really good one.

Holland, Shane, & Pollard try and suceed, as does the rest of the cast, l love the way May in the Buffet always said how nice Mr Parkin was-l would think!..it was funny...pity if finished...but l enjoy the episodes that were made...
