A rare successful sitcom spin-off produced under the aegis of the great Nat Cohen. Harold (Harry H Corbett) marries a girl recognised by dad Albert (Wilfrid Brambell) as being dead common. Albert knows this, of course, because he’s as common as own brand muck. Nevertheless, the marriage goes ahead between Harold and Zita (Carolyn Seymour) leading scriptwriters Ray Galton and Alan Simpson (also responsible for the telly series) to dance in the jaws of the relocation trap by sending the cast to Spain for the honeymoon. This time the production merely tickles the tonsils of disaster, and escapes unharmed by the halitosis of mediocrity. The result is both funny and touching, not an easy combination to achieve in any genre, let alone a sitcom transfer.Read More
