A very sweet, watchable comedy from a time gone by.
28 December 2015 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

What a lovely show this is to watch, it's incredibly light hearted, it's funny, and it's terribly sweet. It's not the funniest comedy you will ever see, but it certainly has its moments, it is totally inoffensive, and just such an easy show to watch and giggle away too. Of course most of us will watch it because it's Molly Sugden, and of course she's brilliant, for those thinking it's an ITV show written for Mrs Slocombe, it isn't, she is so different, Ida is not Betty. Aside from Molly the regular cast are really enjoyable, especially Clare Richards and Harold Godwin, I love the pair of them. Funny episodes across all 4 series, but I think it's perhaps fair to say the earlier ones are the better ones.

I think if you love Molly you can very much enjoy this overlooked little gem, 8/10
