Some six years after Till Death Us Do Part ended, Alf Garnett switches channel and ends up on ITV. He and Else now live in Eastbourne. Una Stubbs pops in with her punk grandson but the Scouse git is nowhere to be seen.

Something was not right with Till Death, it was not well received by the audience and critics. Alf just came across as crass and nasty (I can still recall him making fun of the Jewish Liverpool player, Avi Cohen.) There was no comedy or humour and no one for him to cross blades and make him out to be absurd. The punk grandson concept did not work as well. Writer Johnny Speight himself forgot what made Garnett so compelling.

The show was quickly forgotten and had none of the spirit of the earlier BBC Alf Garnett shows.

Ironically, four years later Alf was back at the BBC with In Sickness and in Health where he was back on form.
