You're Only Young Twice - The Complete Series

This highly popular Yorkshire Television sitcom stars much-loved TV battleaxe Peggy Mount on robust form as Flora Petty, the scourge of Paradise Lodge - a superior residence for retired gentlefolk.

Pat Coombs co-stars as Flora's dim-witted sidekick, Cissie, while veteran stage actress Lally Bowers and sitcom regular Diana King are fellow residents Dolly and Mildred, always ready to lend their weight to Flora's campaign of insubordination against proprietress Miss Milton and her staff. Woe betide anyone who tries to take on the fearless Flora: she's old enough to know better... but wise enough not to care!

Mining a richly comic terrain that would be revisited a decade later in Waiting For God, You're Only Young Twice ran for four series between 1977 and 1981 and they are all collected here for the first time.
