Review

The return of the comedy that time forgot, complete with sets, actors and – dare I say it – jokes that would have found favour in the 1970s. It’s harmless and whimsical, though writer Roy Clarke, now 89, rarely strays from his usual stock character types. The men are feckless fools, schemers or mummy’s boys, while the women tend to be gossipy hens or fearsome martinets.

If you’ve caught previous series, you’ll be in your element, but I doubt that tonight’s plotline, which involves a laundry mangle with a mind of its own and the sight of David Jason being suffocated by Stephanie Cole’s bosom, will turn any newcomers into fans.

Summary

New series. David Jason returns as Granville in this follow-up to Roy Clarke's popular comedy Open All Hours, as he re-opens the doors of the nation's favourite corner shop. In the opening episode, Arkwright's protege finds an old mangle in the yard - and wonders how he can best put it to use. Meanwhile, Beth continues to pressure Leroy to find a date for her best friend, Ruby, who has been suspended at work. Elsewhere, Eric and Cyril tutor Mr Newbold in the art of romance - and how to get closer to Mrs Rossi. Co-starring James Baxter, Johnny Vegas and Katie Redford.
