"You are the gentleman with the two prawn balls!"
7 November 2007 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Sid is thrilled to discover that his layabout son Mike has gotten engaged to a rich man's daughter - Pamela Huntley-Johnson. He is less than thrilled, however, when Sally announces her engagement to Pamela's father, who is some thirty years older than herself...

This episode was the last by the show's creators, Vince Powell and Harry Driver, before the latter's death in 1973. Once again Sid's old fashioned look on life blinds him to common sense; any man with a scrap of intelligence would be delighted at the thought of his daughter marrying into money, no matter what the age of the husband.

Interesting cast. 'It Ain't Half Hot Mum' had been running for three months when Windsor Davies showed up here as Sid's colleague from work. Cheryl Hall was several years away from becoming Wolfie Smith's girlfriend 'Shirley' in 'Citizen Smith', while Sue Holderness, who plays the frightfully posh 'Pamela', is better known these days as tarty 'Marlene' in 'Only Fools & Horses' and 'The Green Green Grass'.

Funniest moment - warned by his wife not to set foot on the new lounge carpet, Sid uses a tea trolley to sail across to the kitchen!
