TV: Y is for...

Yus My Dear

BUT WAIT! It gets worse! LAMENTABLE SEQUEL to ROMANY JONES, with the MULLARD et al relocated from a caravan site to crappy council flat. First episode saw elder brother, appearing from nowhere, turn out to be MIKE REID. Upper-class twit lived next door. Much non-hilarity when Arf discovers first non-stick frying pan.

    Was this sitcom as bad as the critics say, as it sounds like a bit of gor blimey Cockney fun? Mind you, Arthur Mullard’s screen appearances became rarer after Yus My Dear, suggesting ITV weren’t keen to use him much, and in his later career was best known for his cover of You’re The One That I Want.

      He lived a long time after the Grease spoof. Didn’t Arthur have a reputation as a deeply unpleasant individual? Might have been something to do with it. His daughter’s allegations are disturbing, if true.

        @ THX 1139, there are rumours Arthur was a racist and a member of the National Front and the story about his daughter appeared just after he died. Always looked like someone who could be a nasty piece of work but Mullard seemed suited to cockney geeser roles.
