David Jason returns as Granville for a new Christmas special in Arkwright’s shop. Annoyingly for Granville, several of his customers are planning on leaving Doncaster for Christmas. Madge (Brigit Forsyth) is planning on taking Wavy Mavis (Maggie Ollerenshaw) away on a break, and Mr. Newbold (Geoffrey Whitehead) is thinking of doing a runner, leaving Granville with nothing to protect him from the black widow Mrs. Featherstone (Stephanie Cole). After this special a new series starts, which will result in Still Open All Hours having the exact same number of episodes as the original Open All Hours, which you can’t help but feel slightly disturbed by. Still Open All Hours is on at 19.30 on BBC One.
