Penelope Keith and Peter Bowles with Angela Thorne are such a good match and seem to have such fun acting. Wish more series like this were made nowadays. Wholesome entertainment for relaxing. (Note that Angela Thorne is married to an actor and is the mother of the main actor in the MI5 hit series. I saw Peter Bowles on stage in London - he is very talented, not just in his role in this series. Penelope Keith has such grace in real life as well as in her role. The Silver Anniversary reunion was excellent and the behind the scenes stories of the reunion - do not miss!

If you are looking for a comedy, this is a good one. It competes with Are You Being Served.

My favorite series is "are you Being Served".....next is "Open All Hours"...my third is "To the Manor Born". A literate series that captures the class strugles of 1970's Britain....very , very humorous well worth purchasing and I highly recommend it.

Wonderful cast. Acting both excellent in main characters and supporting. Loved the interplay between characters. Delightful comedy of small village/country life in England.
