In Loving Memory: The Complete Series (DVD)
Oldshaw, 1929; when you could enjoy a night out at the Theatre Royal, a pint in the interval, a hot pie on the way home - and still have change from a shilling. You could also have an argument with a brewer's dray and end up as a client of Jeremiah Unsworth and Co., Undertakers and Monumental Masons... and be given one of the most disastrous funerals in the long and noble history of undertaking. Thora Hird (Talking Heads, Last of the Summer Wine) brings her inimitable humour to the role of Ivy Unsworth, widow of funeral director Jeremiah, who has been left to run Unsworth and Co. along with her accident-prone nephew, Billy (Christopher Beeny - Upstairs Downstairs). A much-loved comedy series set in a fictional Lancashire mill town, In Loving Memory was a huge success for Yorkshire Television, running for five series between 1979 and 1986; this complete set, featuring guest appearances by Richard Wilson, Joan Sims, Liz Smith, Geoffrey Bayldon and Victor Maddern, comprises every episode and includes the Christmas Special from 1982.
