'In loving memory' is a show that if you watch ITV3 very early in the morning you'll catch.
Is it worth watching though? Yes, if you accept the fact that it's very much of its time. I was surprised to not see Roy Clarke's name attached because it's very much of his ilk. Slow paced, character driven comedy. But it is slow, and that for me is why I can't say i'd rush to watch it again. There are so many gaps between laughs amongst the studio audience at times you forget it's even a sitcom.
In this age of revisiting classic comedies this one is never mentioned as a possibility, and for me with good reason. It was alright, not spectacular comedy, and very much of its time.
