Gert and Daisy were the creations of real-life sisters, Doris (1899-1978) and Elsie Waters (1893-1990), who in subsequent decades were increasingly remembered as being the siblings of Jack Warner (Dixon of Dock Green), yet they were very much the bigger stars during the war.
Doris and Elsie had cultivated a successful career for over a decade before the war, having been hot-housed from an early age in the family band, the E.W. Waters Bijou Orchestra. Elsie and Doris were awarded OBEs in the King's Birthday Honours List in 1946.
Miss McTaggart Won't Lie Down
Barbara Mullen is on fine form as a spirited woman who returns to her native village, only to discover she's just died!
Jean Mactaggart returns home from Glasgow to the small Scottish village of Kenmore, only to be greeted by the strangest looks from the startled locals. Jean discovers that whilst she was staying in Glasgow, her twin-sister visited Kenmore, passed away, and was mistakenly buried as Jean. When Miss Mactaggart attempts to correct the records, she comes up against a stubborn bureaucratic system that insists she is theoretically and legally dead.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
