This is British humour at its best! A great and highly respected organization is shown to have hilarious moments while trying to make the world a better place! It is all done tongue-in-cheek and in good taste. The three actresses are superb and the situtations they get themselves into are so ridiculous they prove to be great comediennes all! The producers must have had support from The Salvation Army because the uniforms and other props are spot on. It is refreshing to see such a deeply religious and important organization shown in a more human and down-to-earth spotlight. The series makes us respect them all that much more! We enjoyed the discs over several nights and it was like having our own comedy central at home! This series is highly recommended!!
