TV: O is for...

Open All Hours

Ronnie does another verbal riff that sounds like he's going to say breasts but in fact ends up saying jars of picklesTIGHT-ARSED STUTTERING grocercom rendered watchable by RONNIE “TWO” BARKER’s saucer-eyed suffering performance. Playing second fiddle: DAVID JASON as the world’s oldest Hungarian errand boy and LYNDA BARON as “pneumatic” Nurse Gladys. Knackered till, knackered bike, “bit o’ supper”, “dangler”, “ter-ter-treacle” “ter-ter-toffee”, trying to get off with the milkwoman etc. all present.

    2013 remake as fresh and sharp as the best of them, to great relief and surprise. G-G-Granville taking over miser duties in perhaps the wise move of working to a script sticking to the tried and true formula.

    Does anyone know how I can get hold of Ronnie Barker’s spoonerism monologue – the “biny little terd”? I’d love to get hold of it.
