Stiff upper Lips all round
4 November 2004 | by Andrew_S_HattonSee all my reviews

This was when us Brits still had stiff lips and knew "our place".

It is no wonder Yanks get such a false picture of the Brits from this sort of stuff.

Nonetheless it reeks of nostalgia. You can almost smell the leather on the car seats!

I particularly liked the view of all the 1955 coaches lined up at Victoria Coach Station, London. That coach station is still there in the hub of west London, awkwardly located for any of us on the east of the country but the place that remains the hub of coaches throughout the UK.

I spotted a very young and almost good looking Dandy Nichols, I suppose this must be what she looked like when Alf Garnett (Till death us do part!) fell for her!

One senses they were trying to be trendy and "with it" with the female CID officer who was a sergeant already.

A very enjoyable time was had by all even though the main characters were unfamiliar, even to an oldster like me.
