Storyline

Arkwright is long dead and Granville now runs the shop with his daft son Leroy, the result of a one night stand in Blackpool. Granville has inherited his uncle's parsimony, trying to sell nappy rash cream as a body building aid whilst the handsome boy is a hit with the female customers. Granville would like to get back with old flame Mavis, now back on the market, but she is guarded by her fearsome sister Madge though Mrs Featherstone, the one time Black Widow, is extremely interested in a dalliance with Granville - unlike retired nurse Gladys, who is no more interested in Granville than she was in his uncle. Nonetheless, after a trying day with his most annoying customer Wet Eric, Granville realizes that a little affection from the Black Widow may not come amiss. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

[a tea salesman comes into Granville's shop, dressed in a pith helmet, a short khaki tunic and shorts, as if he is in the desert; Granville hardly gives him a glance]
Granville: Warming up out there, is it?
Salesman: You're a deadpan lot around here. What does a bloke have to do to get a reaction?
Granville: You must be wondering what's the point in being dressed like a pillock if nobody cares.
Salesman: "Wear this," the company said. "This'll get you noticed. This'll help you sell." I look like a muffin, don't I?

Still open
5 January 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Like I'm sure a lot of Open All Hours fans I was dubious about this revival,but it is reassuring to see it hasn't been something that has been just cobbled together to fill a slot in the Christmas schedules - Still Open All Hours not only stands up as strongly as the original but also begs the questions as to why this sort of comedy isn't on our screens more regularly.

Yes, it's not all perfect and some of the jokes don't do a lot for me (though the studio audience seem to get them) but with the great Sir David Jason back as Granville (but with a hint of Arkwright) and the welcome sight of some old faces combined with the lovely gentle humour of Roy Clarke's writing I see no reason why this show shouldn't return for a full series. Stay open a bit longer Granville.
