    And another was Mrs Cornwell-Harris whom Seymour wished to be noticed by and the rather aristocratic lady that Hyacinth wanted to be noticed by as long as Onslow was not there!

    One addition -- Roz (Edie's sister) and Rose. Roz is almost always dressed entirely in pink and speaks of her previous lovers -- just like Rose.

    It is NOT fake laughter.

    Roy's comedies often do have similar characters:
    Edie and Hyacinth
    Wesley / Howerd and Richard
    Auntie and Arkwright
    Marina and Rose
    Compo and Onslow

    Enjoyed Downton Abbey. Kinda like Rev as it's light and funny. Vera is
    wonderful as are Call the Midwife, Death in Paradise, Shetland, Still Open
    All Hours, Doctor Blake, and The Murdoch Mysteries. Lots of
    wonderful stuff out there to download and watch. Lewis appears to
    be over and we shall miss it greatly.

    Highly doubt that this will make it across the Pond. We're flooded with Downton Abby. Also odd things are coming across the Pond. Some odd thing called After Life which I will NOT watch. Another thing called Rev. about an Anglican priest in London. That's so, so. And some really weird show about the boy going through puberty with the help of his imaginary friend who is a grown man and wears high heels. NOT. And then we get dribs and drabs, some Vera, some Murder in Paradise, some Midsomer Murder, and so on and so forth. And let's not forget Ins. Morse, Ins. Lewis, and Poirot.

    I agree the laughter tracks are awful. Puts me off completely.

    I agree, it's not as good as the original.

    It's time TV companies put their money into making new programs and not rehashing old ones.

    The original was hilarious not sure about the remake. It's gentle but not laugh out loud funny. Last night was one of the better episodes with the 4 women chatting and reminded me of LOTSW. They seem to have turned Gastric into Compo
    Which begs the question why get rid of LOTSW in the first place?
    The fake laughter does it no favours either.

    Thoughts?
