Queenie Shepherd is a proper Yorkshire lass, drinking ale in far from small amounts, and ruling over her own 'castle' - Buckingham Flats' Margaret Rose House tower block. Any dissenters will find plenty of trouble from her and her three sons, Raymond, Douglas and Bunny. Her arch-enemy is the aptly named, Mrs Petty.

Our Review: A reasonably enjoyable series, but not all that funny. Although Diana Dors puts on a good show as Queenie, most of the characters were frequently on the wrong side of likeable, so it's somewhat of a mystery how 3 series came to be produced.
