Press

Writer Roy Clarke sustains his blend of gentleness and pathos as David Jason stars in a fourth series of the revived comedy. Granville has learned to charm the ferocious Arkwright cash register, but is in other respects turning into his late uncle - at times bordering on impersonating him - while his passions for Mavis are thwarted by Mr Newbold and Mrs Featherstone. There are larks as Eric and Cyril venture out on their tandem.
