Quotes

Vera Plumtree: My late husband had a labrador. He was an engine driver you know.
May: [sardonically] What, the labrador?
Vera Plumtree: No, my late husband. Now and then from time to time, he'd get this far away look in his eye, and he'd be away for days, until he'd satisfied his yearnings.
Ethel Schumann: What, your husband?
Vera Plumtree: No, the labrador!

Reet good...
2 February 2004 | by goldfinger2a-2See all my reviews

Thats Yorkshire for right good, and it was, l have all the episodes on tape and l watch them over and over again, given more time this would have been a classic sit com, as it is it`s a really good one.

Holland, Shane, & Pollard try and suceed, as does the rest of the cast, l love the way May in the Buffet always said how nice Mr Parkin was-l would think!..it was funny...pity if finished...but l enjoy the episodes that were made...

8/10
