  • Never Say Die

    Anyone remember this comedy series set in a retirement home ?

    Don't think it was very successful as it only lasted for one series despite a strong cast including Irene Handl and Arthur English.

    Never seen it repeated. Nor on Youtube.

    There were apparently two British sitcoms made with that title:

    This one from Yorkshire Television made in 1970 set on a hospital ward - https://www.comedy.co.uk/tv/never_say_die_1970/

    And this one from Channel 4 in 1987 set in a retirement home: https://www.comedy.co.uk/tv/never_say_die/

    Yours is the latter, though I have to say I have no memory of either.

        That's the one. About the only thing I can recall now is the cast all singing the theme tune at the end of the programme. Included in their number was Zohra Sehgal.

          I think it was one of Irene's Handl's last roles very sadly. My favourite comedy actress.
