For The Love Of Ada - The Complete Series

This gentle, fondly remembered sitcom pairs comedy legends Irene Handl and Wilfred Pickles as two senior citizens who find that as romance blossoms, so too does the inevitable emotional turmoil...

Created and scripted by the massively successful writing team of Vince Powell and Harry Driver, the series charts the relationship between Yorkshireman Walter Bingley and Londoner Ada Cresswell, septuagenarians who meet while Ada is visiting the grave of her late husband. Will their love survive the disapproval of Ada's daughter, Ruth? Does the "permissive society" extend to its senior citizens? Can the North-South divide be bridged? And will Walter and Ada ever save enough money to get married on their old-age pensions?

Co-starring Love Thy Neighbour's Jack Smethurst, this complete-series set comprises all four series - including the 1971 Christmas special.
