Special – You Can’t Teach a New Dog Old Tricks

The classic British sitcom returns for a celebratory special. Picking up where Jeremy Lloyd and David Croft’s classic comedy left off, the show brings some of the nation’s all-time favourite sitcom characters back to life with an all-star cast.

It is 1988, and Young Mr Grace is determined to drag Grace Brothers into, well, 1988. But he has a problem on his hands. Mr Humphries, Captain Peacock, Mr Rumbold and Mrs Slocombe all seem to be stuck in another era. A new member of staff, Mr Conway, joins the team. But will he help shake things up, or will he just put a pussy among the pigeons?

Are You Being Served? is a British Sitcom that ran from 1972-1985. The show revolved around “Grace Brothers Department Store” and in particular the goings on within the “Gentlemen’s Ready-To-Wear” and “Ladies’ Separates and Underwear” Departments. A store reorganization forced these two departments to share floor space, and the conflicts that this created set the tone for most episodes. Are You Being Served? showcases a bygone period of time in which the class structure was still very much alive. There was a strict hierarchy within Grace Brothers. Everyone knew their “places” and remained in them, unless, of course, there was a chance for advancement and then it was every man and woman for themselves. A spin-off series of Are You Being Served? was released, called Grace and Favour. Although in the U.S, it was named Are You Being Served? Again!
