One of the great strengths of the original TV series of Till Death Us Do Part was the loose, discursive nature of each episode and the topicality of many of the Alf Garnett character's diatribes about politics, race, religion and royalty. Obviously, the feature format precluded the use of a similar structure and writer Johnny Speight's decision to opt for a Millions like Us account of family fortunes from the 1930s to contemporary times only partly comes off. There are highlights, such as Alf at the 1966 World Cup final, but not many, and they're not up to the television standard.

Plot Summary

Comedy based on the popular TV series, starring Warren Mitchell and Dandy Nichols. The history of the Garnetts, headed by cockney bigot Alf, is traced from the Second World War to the family's move to the suburbs.
