An early ITV sitcom.
1 April 1999 | by toons-3See all my reviews

I was only nine years old but I still remember Alf Larkin being hen pecked by his missus Ada in this early ITV sitcom.David Kossoff and Peggy Mount were well cast in their parts.As far as I can recall,it was quite an amusing series,a possible precursor of "George and the Dragon" in which Peggy Mount appeared with Sid James some eight years later.
