There is a a remake of a lost Steptoe & Son, "A Winters Tale", probably to air on Sept 15. This episode is supposedly lost but it does exist, I have seen it.

Two more watched, Goodnight Sweetheart and Young Hyacinth. The former continued from the original series, except it is was set in 1962, just after the release of Gary's own compositions "Love Me Do". He is reunited with his first wife Yvonne and a very fat Ron "Victor McGuire", too many burgers me thinks. This remake could have done without the audience laughter. There are lots of posts on social media sites wanting a new series, so BBC take note. Overall it was a good comedy outing for this remake.

Young Hyacinth saw the 4 sisters, trying to be dragged up the social scale by a young Hyacinth, very well played by Kerry Howard. Roy Clarke is just a great writer and this was just another superb script. A possible candidate for a series to see how they 4 sisters, Hyacinth, Daisy, Gloria and Violet lives pan out into how we saw them on Keeping Up Appearances.

Next up is a remake of a Hancock's Half Hour.

The ending on Goodnight Sweetheart left the door wide openSly for a new series and that's maybe what was beind it, lets hope so and all the original cast was a major plus.

Not the original cast but the cast that finished the series. Michelle Holmes and Dirva Kerwin were the original wives. Thought "Reg Deadman" was as good as ever he did not seemed to have aged.

Quite liked Goodnight Sweetheart, Young Hyacinth was OK but did not like Till Death though not a fan of Simon Day.

I missed it but will see it on catch-up.

I've been watching the re-runs oif the original series on free-sat and absolutely love it.

Remember the 'randy' major who appeared occasionally, played by Peter Cellier ??. Well - He lives in my home town. We occasionally chat in the supermarket whilst shopping.

From what I've seen

Are You Being Served? - very good, a good copy of the original. Especially impressive with a new writer. I really hope they revive this.

Porridge - not as good as the above, but funny and very watchable.

Young Hyacinth - Hyacinth's mannerisms were very good but it wasn't funny, watchable and well made.

Goodnight Sweetheart - again very good and a new series would be welcome.

I've watched the latest offering from the BBC sitcom series. this was Hancock's Half Hour, a remake of a 1955 script called "The New Neighbour". I wasn't a fan of Hancock, being before my time is probably the reason for that, and I have only seen a few clips of his shows, but I did enjoy this remake. Kevin McNally as Hancock, Robin Sebastian as Kenneth Williams and Jon Culshaw as Sid James were all played well. Sid James is a hard character to emulate so well done John Culshaw. It took a while for me to figure out that Katy Wix was playing Hatti Jaques and I just couldn't get past Katy as Daisy from Not Going Out. I will have to find some original Hancock shows.

The third programme in the Lost Sitcom season has been aired. This was Steptoe & Son in "A Winter's Tale". Although the original was wiped by the BBC it does exist and has been restored, and as I have mentioned previously, I have seen the original. The remake follows the script and is performed almost identically to the original except for the opening sequence and one part later in the show which was changed, probably due to the remake being being staged in a theatre in front of a live audience. This change is very minor and is just prop placement.

Jeff Rawle plays Albert, which he tries to get close to how Wilfrid Brambell played him. To me he just didn't have that quite have the raw rough old Steptoe mannerism that Wilfrid had.

Ed Coleman plays Harold and he fell well short of portraying Harry H Corbett. His timing and boyish excitment was missing and he couldn't do the Harold Steptoe laugh, he didn't even try.

Overall the episode was enjoyable and performed well in a live studio environment.

I'm a big Red Dwarf fan and the new episode was just as funny as the previous episodes. I'm looking forward to the rest of series 11 and also series 12.

3 million years in future and a joke about Mars Bars and Scotland. And the bit about what the lady would or would not do in the speakeasy. Bit near the knuckles showing nipples.

Porridge alone and none of the others? If so i wonder how they came to that decision because imo it was far from the best of these programmes.

Maybe others will be announced if and when the BBC and various parties have completed negotiations. I would like a new series of Goodnight Sweetheart. One of the new comedies that was aired, called Motherland, will also get a new series. I didn't see this comedy and will see if it is still available on iPlayer.

Good to see Still Game back and being primetime all over British Isles a hidden gem if you have not discovered it.

Love the Kryten quote about F.I.F.A this week on Red Dwarf.

Third series of the brilliant Count Arthur Strong coming soon. A number 4 with no sausage for me.

Josh on BBC3 is OK if only for the guest spots, Tasmin Outhweight as a Cougar / MILF and her referring to Sausage and Hash Brown . Jack Dee is very good in it.

I'm a big fan of Still Game. good to see it back with all the regular cast. Shame Pete the Jakey didn't live to be part of the new series.

So pleased to see W1A is back, I think it's absolutely brilliant, Hugh Bonneville is excellent and Dave Tennents voice overs are great. Not everyone's cup of tea I'm sure.
