You've Met Dracula, Now Meet The Mummy!
21 November 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Blakey's mother moves into the Butler household. She's only supposed to be there for two days, but proves reluctant to leave. Mrs.Blake is domineering, bad-tempered and vain. She has Mrs.Butler cooking her breakfast at 8.30 a.m., polishing her shoes, taking her newspapers, and generally treats her like a dogsbody. Mum is frightened to throw her out for fear of offending Blakey. Matters come to a head at the bingo hall. Winning close to £100, Mrs.Blake refuses to share the money, even though Mum paid for the winning ticket...

Written by George Layton and Jonathan Lynn. Pat Nye's 'Mrs.Blake' is a truly unpleasant woman, who treats her son as though he's still only four years old. One can easily see where Blakey gets his dictatorial qualities from. Doris Hare is magnificent in this episode, her timidity finally breaking through and turning into raw anger.

Funniest moment - Olive relaying Mrs.Blake's complaint about her breakfast.

OLIVE: She says it was only supposed to be a three-minute egg.

MUM: Tell her it was only supposed to be a two-day visit!
