Frail and poorly Nanna is now permanently in bed in the Royles' sitting room,causing Jim to sulk when she swaps the battery from the remote for her fan. Antony has split from Emma but brings their little boy Lewis to visit whilst little David tries out his judo moves. Cheryl brings a succession of boyfriends to visit,the nervous Derek,whose ginger hair reminds Nanna of 'Annie',paint-balling Slash and a rabbi called Solomon. Denise gives birth to a daughter,named Norma after Nanna,which delights the old lady but,just as Barbara is looking forward to having her floors laminated throughout,the worst happens and Nanna slips away. It is a sad moment and even Jim sheds a tear. However Nanna has told Denise she wants her wake to be a jolly one so the family obliges. Written by don @ minifie-1

Bloody Brilliant !!
17 July 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

FANTASTIC !! I only hope that its not the last time we shall see the Royles in action, If I could have any wish right now it would be to see a new series ! Its the best comedy sitcom to ever hit our screens why should it end when so many people love it ?

And even though we saw the very emotional death of Nana and she was such a big part of the Royle Family series, I still feel there is still so much more to see.

This DVD will take pride of place with the rest of my Royle collection and will be enjoyed for many years. If your a fan of the first & second series then this DVD which may, although hopefully will not be the finale is a must buy for any fan.
