Trivia

ATV were so pleased with Mrs. Thursday that they offered the production team the budget for a 90 minute version but was ultimately never taken up simply because Kathleen Harrison was stunned and baffled by the adulation and lack of privacy the series had brought her and wanted to retreat quietly back into relative obscurity. However because of the series popularity in Germany Ted Willis wrote a special for German TV featuring Inge Meysel as Mrs Thursday. See more »

Memories of a very Happy series
12 October 2014 | by patron2-199-462107See all my reviews

My husband, the late Ron Blanchard was the Senior Floor Manager on this wonderful series. In 1967 he and the crew went on location on the Union Castle Lines ship - "Reina Del Mar" with Kathleen Harrison and Hugh Manning. They did some fantastic filming in Casablanca and Madeira and on board ship of course where they covered the "crossing of the line" tradition when Hugh Manning got a ducking! Ron took a lot of good quality slide photos which I have, also several letters from Kathleen to him and to me. She was a very "homely" character in reality and also very kind, sending little gifts to me and our baby daughter at the time. I also have some interesting memorabilia from the ship in the form of menus, itineraries etc. which Ron brought back.

Listening to the series theme tune now, it brings back many happy memories from the "golden years" of Television. Kathleen Harrison was a true star of television and radio.
