TV: E is for... Emery Presents By TV Cream Posted on April 19, 2009 Share Tweet Share Share Email Comments ON BBC2 FROM 1982 TO 1983 ON THE ROPES and on the way out vehicle for the Dickster, taking the form of a murder mystery serial in a stately home. Naturally Emery did all (or at least most) of the characters, including obligatory be-turbanned “comedy Asian”.

It was sadly Dick Emery’s last outing as he died shortly afterwards. Reply Arthur Nibble June 29, 2009 at 9:26 am Does anyone else remember seeing Dick Emery on “Top Of The Pops”? It was in the days when they’d play a record in the positions between 31 and 50 (without giving its chart placing, unless Jimmy “Maverick” Savile was the compere) if there weren’t enough top 30 new entries or climbers available to fill out the show as normal. Our Dick managed two top 50 hits, “If You Were Her” (number 32 in 1969) and the conga-driven “You Are Awful” (number 43 in 1973), the latter being granted an appearance amongst ver kids. Reply julie whalley July 11, 2009 at 7:49 pm which episode of this series did they film at Blackpool airport ? i remember seeing it filmed and was in the background in the ..then..chocolate kiosk….dick emery spoke to me between takes, about various subjects., Reply John Connolly August 13, 2009 at 4:20 pm Wasn’t there another similar series called “Jack of Diamonds”, in which the father and son characters (was “Gaylord” the son?) unintentionally got embroiled in some sort of diamond smuggling racket (a plot ripped off wholesale for the “To Hull and Back” Fools and Horses Xmas special)?
