Storyline

On Bank Holiday Monday Bill is looking forward to hosting Clive,Laura and Laura's German mother Sophie. Unfortunately Bette pays a surprise visit with her talk of VE Day street parties and The Sound of Music video and when Rona brings Pearl in to divert her the pair do nothing but talk about the Blitz. Fortunately both are shuffled off to Rona's before Sophie arrives and,apart from Christine dressing as Hitler for the street party, the whole day goes swimmingly. Of course the women had reckoned without Ben's clumsy attempts to mend the bedroom wall... Written by don @ minifie-1

A more fraught bank holiday you couldn't imagine.
6 March 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

I have to say, this series generally is one of my favourites, it is very much a purple patch for the show, the writing is just great. Mayday is another seriously funny episode. The two people you wouldn't want meeting a German grandmother, Bette and Auntie Pearl, low and behold the pair turn up. It is a hilarious episode, one that I would imagine would never be made nowadays, as it would probably be deemed offensive, something this show would never be during its run.

I always love Bette, she's so funny, but add in Auntie Pearl, and you have a caustic comedy duo.

Funny throughout, 9/10
