Comic goings on in this series set in an English holiday camp called Maplins. The title comes from the camp's greeting, which the staff are meant to say with enthusiasm but all too often the camp guests are the last thing on their minds. Ted's the camp comic but is always on the lookout for a way to make money. Gladys has her eye on the boss, and Peggy wants to swap her mop and cleaner's outfit for a "yellow coat".Written by
The "Endeavour" series 5 episode "Colours" featured a Ballroom dancing competition called the "Stuart Hargreaves" - clearly another playful reference to the beloved dysfunctional Ballroom dancing instructors Yvonne and Barry Stuart-Hargreaves from "Hi De Hi". See more »
The cast, except Felix Bowness, give the thumbs up, shrugs their shoulders, smiles, etc during the closing credits. Bowness, however, speaks to the camera, but the only audio is the theme song. See more »
When this series first started, I freely admit I was not a fan. On first view, it was not up to their shining glory that is Dads Army. On the other hand, nothing is. I first started to 'got it' with the horse on a horse scene. I laughed and laughed. Since then, it has appeared on repeats and channels like UK Gold. The performance of Simon Cadell is outstanding. Every cast member fits their role like a glove. It grows on one and all I can say is, Well Done Jimmy Perry and David Croft.
