ageless classic
9 January 2012 | by david-hockney1See all my reviews

A great show back then and seems even better today, nice to watch humour and fun without all the vulgarity and swearing that seems to be required these days.A great cast and a simple but great plot, takes you out of the stresses of modern life for half an hour and puts a big smile on your face.This show has stood the test of time even my kids love it. Surely there's life still left in sorry! even more so today with kids staying at home well into their 30's. Although the rest of the cast were brilliant and now sadly incomplete i still think Ronnie Corbett could carry on from where he left off, what a great thought! Would love to know were it was filmed.
