| A delicious farce.
Some programs you never tire in watching and this is one of those gems. Lucky to watch this when it was first broadcast and a year or two later it was repeated so managed to video it. Nearly every Christmas I make a point of watching this and always relish in its excellence. From the superb acting, delicious and witty scripts and the clever way it is shot in such tiny studio sets you can only but wonder why the BBC didn't show this as often on TV as they did; it is an absolute gem of a play. For me Prunella Scales is the star but all the actors interact so well together this is a delicate interplay of different personalities cleverly forged into a ballet of mirth. This program should really be released on DVD or repeated again for future generations. A stonker.
