Yus, My Dear – 1976
Another sitcom from the London Weekend stable. Yus My Dear was the spin off sequel from the classic Romany Jones. It starred Arthur Mullard and Queenie Watts reprising their roles as Wally and Lilly Briggs.
It has faired less well in people’s memories and at the time than it’s predecessor, gaining modest ratings and a reputation of being one of the worst ever sitcoms. However it did run on ITV for 19 episodes over two series in 1976.
It is also noted for an early regular TV appearance of the comedian Mike Reid.
