Storyline

Arkwright is long dead and Granville now runs the shop with his daft son Leroy, the result of a one night stand in Blackpool. Granville has inherited his uncle's parsimony, trying to sell nappy rash cream as a body building aid whilst the handsome boy is a hit with the female customers. Granville would like to get back with old flame Mavis, now back on the market, but she is guarded by her fearsome sister Madge though Mrs Featherstone, the one time Black Widow, is extremely interested in a dalliance with Granville - unlike retired nurse Gladys, who is no more interested in Granville than she was in his uncle. Nonetheless, after a trying day with his most annoying customer Wet Eric, Granville realizes that a little affection from the Black Widow may not come amiss. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

[a tea salesman comes into Granville's shop, dressed in a pith helmet, a short khaki tunic and shorts, as if he is in the desert; Granville hardly gives him a glance]
Granville: Warming up out there, is it?
Salesman: You're a deadpan lot around here. What does a bloke have to do to get a reaction?
Granville: You must be wondering what's the point in being dressed like a pillock if nobody cares.
Salesman: "Wear this," the company said. "This'll get you noticed. This'll help you sell." I look like a muffin, don't I?

Rather Dreadful and often very unfunny
6 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Unfortunately I have to agree with those who find this pretty awful. Firstly, Ronnie Barker for me was Britain's number 1 comedian of all time. I enjoyed Open All Hours immensely, but that was then, this is now. I saw 2-3 episodes from the first Series of Still Open All Hours - I think it was first Series - At first, I found it passable, but after buying the boxed DVDs for Series 1-2 and 3, it got worse and unfunny very quickly. To the extent that Series 3 really became pathetic. Revolving around an unfunny theme of selling the silly Eric and Cyril unsold or out of date produce from the shop, with the promise it would improve their sex life ??? Laughs were very few and far between and short. Why Mark Williams - Father Brown - appeared 3 times in the earlier Series, I have no idea, all 3 Series were a mishmash of 'bits' just tacked together to make a 30 minute programme ! Now, I hear of a possible 4th Series ? Series 3 should have ended any idea of that ?? Seems it didn't ?
