Larkins (The): The Complete Series 6
Running Time: 215 Mins
Release Date: 04/10/2012
Content Type: TV Series
Starring David Kossoff and Peggy Mount in their best-known TV roles, series six of this classic early ATV sitcom finds the Larkins – hen-pecked but crafty Alf and his formidable wife Ada – busy running their café and B&B in their own inimitable fashion, with former neighbour Hetty Prout helping out in the kitchen. Skilful attempts to dodge the rent by long-term lodger Osbert, and the tempting charms of a rival café’s new waitress are only a few of the problems facing the couple this time around.
Created by Clapham-born Fred Robinson and based upon his youthful plays about a fictional Cockney family, The Larkins marries skilful comic playing with a script that ATV production controller Bill Ward described as the funniest he had ever read, and inspired great affection throughout its six-year run. First screened in 1964, these episodes have been transferred from the original film telerecordings specifically for this release.
