Strange subject for a comedy, 1 December 2005
Author: tradingnorth from United Kingdom

Having grown up with this sort of sitcom in the 80's, I jumped at the chance to buy the DVD when I noticed in my local store.

The subject of the "salvation Army" in a sitcom might not seem the obvious choice, but the talents of Thora Hird and the rest of the cast help to make it light and enjoyable, without it becoming too serious.

The series has 7 episodes in it and while they all have there own story, there is a underlying thread which ties the series together nicely.

After watching them again after many years, I was surprised by the amount of references to local places in Yorkshire (I know its where it is set but considering it was broadcast nationally some of the references/jokes will have been lost.)

For anyone who likes spotting people from other shows then this is a must, the cameo by the late Richard Whiteley is superb.

In general, great cast, good stories and plenty of humour, a good traditional comedy
