    With the recent death of Ronnie Barker, how can we lobby (presumably the BBC) to have this classic shown/re-shown? And while we're at it, The Strange World of Gurney Slade - now there's a classic bit of surrealism! Does it still exist?

    IIRC A GURNEY SLADE was repeated in the early 90s (?) as part of CH4's TV HEAVEN strand.

    I remember it was repeated in 2001. The first time I watched it was when I was 5 and so the humour was a bit purile and reminiscent of a lengthened Benny Hill sketch. A typical scene would be the bit where a busty maid is holding 2 jellies resembling boobies on plate accompanied by 'wobbly' sound effects - I think Ronnie Barker's monocle falls into his wine or something. Michael Horden's scenes as the perverted butler were a bit uncomfortable as well.

    A good period piece though and I hope they repeat it. I gather that the house is actually a hotel North of London...

    I have a feeling it's Grimsdyke, or some such - and also featured in TWISTED NERVE. If so, I THINK it belonged to either Gilbert or Sullivan (of the Savoy Operas fame) and whichever it was died there. In the pool ??? (Old age and/or bad memory will be the death of me !)

    EDIT ADDITION http://www.grimsdyke.com/



    It is indeed Grimsdyke, and he did die there (Gilbert)
