In Loving Memory

When the local undertaker dies, his widow decides to keep the  business going as long as she can despite the fact that everybody, with the exception of her clumsy employee (and nephew), wants her to fail. The jokes don’t exactly come at you one after the other in this slowly paced series, but the ones that work are pretty hilarious. Thora Hird give a delightful performance as the widow, as does Christopher Beeny as her naive nephew, Billy. The pace takes a bit of getting used to, but the overall effect is well worth the trouble.
