Thora Hird stars as indefatigable Salvation Army Captain Emily Ridley in this sitcom, which reunites her with In Loving Memory creator and writer Dick Sharples. The series also stars Patsy Rowlands (Bless This House), Geoffrey Bayldon, Garfield Morgan (No Job For A Lady) and Gretchen Franklin, with guest appearances from Thora Hird's Last Of The Summer Wine co-star Michael Aldridge, Joan Sims, and Countdown legend Richard Whitely.

For over forty years, Emily Ridley has fought the Devil and all his works with a vigour and sincerity second to none. Unfortunately, latter-day sinners seem reluctant to respond to the old hellfire-and-brimstone brand of evangelism, and Emily's superiors decide it's time for her to lay down her arms and retire from the battlefield. She's posted to the quiet little Yorkshire town of Brigthorpe which, she is convinced, is in urgent need of salvation...

This two-disc set includes both series of the village sitcom, first broadcast during 1983 and 1984.
