| a gentle sitcom
For the Love of Ada appears on the surface to be quite a gentle sitcom, but when you examine the scripts and the subject matter contained what you get is quite a provocative comedy, it refers to death, affairs, social attitudes and ageism.

It succeeds because of the quality of the writing and a great cast. Irene Handle and Wilfred Pickles sparkle as the geriatric couple with a sparkle in their eyes, living a second teenage phase. These are complemented by the wonderful and sadly missed Barabara Mitchel, and the very underrated and much maligned Jack Smethurst.

A definite gem in ITV,s crown.
