British Comedy Classic TV - Open All Hours

Many different series abound on Active Rain.

 

Often not directly real estate related, but related to the passions of the real estate industry folks who flock to the rain to interact with others.

 

One of ours is British Comedy Classic TV shows.

 

If you are a fan of "British Humor", you may appreciate this entry in our series: Open All Hours

"The setting is a small grocer's shop in Balby, a suburb of Doncaster in South Yorkshire. The owner, Arkwright (Ronnie Barker), is a middle-aged miser with a stammer and a knack for selling. His nephew Granville (David Jason) is his put-upon errand boy, who blames his work schedule for his lacklustre social life.

Across the road lives Nurse Gladys Emmanuel (Lynda Baron), occupied by her professional rounds, and her elderly mother. Arkwright longs to marry her, but she resists his persistent pressures. Though short-tempered with Arkwright, she is concerned for his and Granville's welfare."

 

The series ran for four seasons - ending in 1985. In 2013, the sequel “Still Open All Hours” launched as a “one off” Christmas Revival Special in 2013, with Granville (David Jason) now running the shop after inheriting it from Arkwright. It was so popular that the BBC commissioned a new series - of which two seasons have been produced and broadcast so far.

 

 

 

Absolutely hilarious!

 

 

We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
