Sad end
18 February 2018 | by kittenkongshowSee all my reviews

I've always found this film odd to watch as Yootha Joyce passed on before it's release and her last on screen moment being a wink to the camera before switching off the light heading upstairs (another series on TV was planned before her untimely death).

Sadly the plot leaves the usual TV storylines (and for the most part excludes their neighbours the Fourmiles) for a mistaken identity plot (where George is mistaken for a hitman!).

The guest cast can't help the film from being on of the worst sit-com spin-off films as well as being one of the final (with Rising Damp) damp squibs of the genre (Future feature length adaptations such as Last Of The Summer Wine and Only Fools and Horses would be TV specials).

Sadly the end of an era in so many ways.
