Ah...Dandy Nicholls...yes. Amazing woman. She could put Alf in his place with just one twitch of an eyebrow. I often liken Jo Brand to her. Her face can appear as dead pan as it could possibly be, but there's always a flicker of bitch in there somewhere.
I know exactly what you mean, but the comedy in itself is still good and definitely true of that era. It's still a great watch, as I'm sure you'll agree. The new woman in his life does okay. Obviously she could never complete the family unit like Dandy could, but she was a necessary character. Alf always needed a silly old moo to slag off and belittle...in spite of always making himself look even more of a prat in the process.
Don't miss out on laughs. Pack those jokes in nice and tight.
This would be even funnier if.........
