The Home Perm
14 November 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

So the series comes to an end. I just hope somebody at the production office did get a Honda motorbike given how many times Mildred mentioned her little Honda throughout the years.

Flora's relatives are coming to visit her. They must have purchased a new car and her late husband's niece got hold of the fur coat in the will.

Flora decides to join the rest of the ladies to get a perm but scoffs at the price and upsets Luigi the Italian hairdresser in the process. Insulted, Luigi who is not even Italian makes sure no other hairdresser in town will deal with Flora.

Against her better judgement Flora relies on Cissie's home perm kit which leads to a punk style send off with the cast.

The final series saw Miss Milton become a little more authoritarian with her rules, maybe reflecting the first female Prime Minister in Britain.

At least the series which was not always at the level of The Last of the Summer Wine had good enough writing, some amusing moments and plenty of daffiness from Pat Coombs to keep it going and there seemed to have been little drop in standards.
