The Gaffer. That's a good old fashioned term for the boss.This is what the programme was, a good old fashioned working mans down to earth comedy. Very well scripted and the cast all seem to be having so much fun. Very clever plot lines and a social statement of the need to juggle a small business to keep it all going.You have to admire Bill Maynard here as it's all based around him and he is in almost every scene.I think we all know a person like the gaffer ,just takes it all in his stride and gets on. 3 series probably just about right as any more would probably have over stretched it. Still seems as fresh now as it was 35 years ago. Modern writers could take a look at this to see how to write a proper sit-com. No vulgarity or coarse language and would like to see any of todays so called comedy writers do anything half as good.Bought this as a 3 DVD set so I can enjoy it in another 35 years when it will probably still look fresh.
