Review

Rating: 2 out of 5.

This sporadically charming fish-out-of-water comedy sees a family of cockneys moving to the Devon countryside when they inherit a run-down farm. Director Vernon Sewell manages a few sly touches, as local housekeeper Kathleen Harrison tries to whip the work-shy Londoners into shape. George Cole gives his rent-a-spiv character another airing, and there's a young Edward Woodward lurking among the bit players. The script is by RF Delderfield, who also wrote the novel that formed the basis of the memorable BBC TV series To Serve Them All My Days.
