Get Some In!

PART OF THAT 1950s revival which seemed to stretch from, well, 1959 right through to the final death cry of HI-DE-HI. Only this was quite good, thanks to the presence of Esmonde and Larbey (EVER DECREASING CIRCLES) on script duties and the likes of TONY SELBY, DAVID JANSON and ROBERT LINDSAY doing the gags. “Three ration coupons for a packet of nylons? Blimey!”

    Enjoyed this when I was little and watched the first series and Christmas special on YouTube recently and was amused to see Simon “I’m an ac-TOR” Callow playing an East End teddy boy in one episode. My only disappointment is that it hasn’t been repeated on one of the many cheap and cheerful digital channels devoted to endless repeats (enough Only Fools and fecking Horses already!).

    I reading that the last series was commissioned late in the day after the series had wrapped up storywise leading to a contrived restart & Karl Howman replacing Robert Lindsay.

    It’s not often there’s a series about the RAF in peacetime, especially concentrating on the ground staff.
