Rare miss for David Croft
30 July 2007 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

David Croft was a successful writer/director with many, much loved British comedies like "Dad's Army", "It Ain't Half Hot Mum" and "'Allo 'Allo!" to his credit but this was a complete loser - no "Dad's Army".

Obviously scripted to get the best out of popular Australian TV comedian Ron Frazer, it ended up more like "Are You Being Served?" with rather puerile "nudge, nudge, wink, wink" jokes and a bevy of untalented, if attractive girls in various states of undress, it just didn't work.

Imported British actors Hugh Lloyd and Anne Sidney filled out the cast but it was pulled halfway through it's British run and never got another showing in Australia where it was set and filmed.
