In Loving Memory - The Complete Series
Oldshaw, 1929; when you could enjoy a night out at the Theatre Royal, a pint in the interval, a hot pie on the way home - and still have change from a shilling. You could also have an argument with a brewer's dray and end up as a client of Jeremiah Unsworth and Co., Undertakers and Monumental Masons... and be given one of the most disastrous funerals in the long and noble history of undertaking.
Thora Hird (Last Of The Summer Wine) brings her inimitable humour to the role of Ivy Unsworth, widow of funeral director Jeremiah, who has been left to run Unsworth and Co. along with her accident-prone nephew, Billy (Christopher Beeny - Upstairs Downstairs). A much-loved comedy series set in a fictional Lancashire mill town, In Loving Memory was a big hit for Yorkshire Television, running for five series between 1979 and 1986; this complete set, featuring guest appearances by Richard Wilson, Joan Sims, Liz Smith, Geoffrey Bayldon and Victor Maddern, contains every episode from the series, including 1982's Christmas special.

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.
