Writer Roy Clarke’s revisiting of the beloved Ronnie Barker vehicle is completely timeless, which is doubtless part of its appeal. There are no crude 21st-century technological innovations in that little corner shop in Yorkshire, it could be set in any year from the 1930s.
There’s also a pervading feeling of a cosy community of the type that probably either doesn’t exist or never did exist, as a series of oddballs passes through the doors of Arkwright’s stores. Mrs Dawlish (Vicki Pepperdine) is the comedy nuisance here, a snobby local who’s taken aback that such an old-fashioned corner shop is still flourishing.
But there are signs that Granville (David Jason) is modernising – he wants to open a coffee shop!
Granville reveals his big ambitions to open his own coffee shop, causing quite a stir in the neighbourhood. Does Starbucks need to be sobbing into its mocha just yet? Snobbish local Mrs Dawlish pays a visit, and can't quite believe that such old-fashioned corner shops still exist. It seems the cunning proprietor will have his work cut out making any money from her. Meanwhile, Eric has been left to babysit his depressed brother-in-law all day.
