Still Open All Hours.

A possibility that this show will return for a full series in 2014?

Sweet Zombie Jesus!

I cannot believe that people are not talking about this.

Good laughs.

Re: Still Open All Hours.

Could have been better - especially with the accents, which wandered all over the north, never quite settling on the one they should have, but that was the case with the old show, too.

One thing I did like - Granville's transformation into the new Arkwright. The old Granville wanted to escape his life of boredom and drudgery, but we see that he never did. And what's more, he's perfectly aware that he's Arkwright 2.0 and doesn't seem to mind. The very essence of "show, don't tell" and subtle pathos. Nicely done.

It was awful. This and that shoddy Dr Who 50th special made me wonder why I paid this year's license fee.

Maybe you'll be happier with 2014's license fee after Sherlock tonight...

Whilst it wasn't perfect, I thought it captured something of the original. I'd like to see a new series...
