Still Open All Hours

Still Open All Hours

Series 1 - Episode 6



The ghost of Ronnie Barker has been a discernible presence throughout this run, so Roy Clarke presumably decided to make a virtue of it by writing him into the series finale.

Granville’s convinced that Arkwright is haunting the corner shop. The till randomly opens and shuts while the lights turn on and off by themselves. But Granville’s not bothered: in a poignant moment he reveals he likes having his late uncle around.

However, the arrival of a glamorous woman (Paula Wilcox wearing a short skirt that sends the coven of Nurse Gladys, the Black Widow, Mavis and Madge into pursed-lip meltdown) makes him look like he’s seen a ghost.


A few mysterious goings-on in the shop convince Granville the place is haunted by Arkwright - but the locals refuse to believe him. That's not the only ghost, however, as a surprise visitor from the past gets the entire street talking. David Jason stars, with a guest appearance from Paula Wilcox.
