Quotes

Uncle Albert: During the 1939-1945 conflict with Germany - I was sailing on a frigate, HMS Sphinx, in the Adriatic. Now in those days a ship's crew was full of stress and fear.

Uncle Albert: So our old skipper, Captain Kenworthy, used to allay all those fears by creating a counter-worry. Like one day he announced there was a cholera epidemic on the ship.

Plonkers ! Should have stopped in 1996
3 June 2019 | by gibbs-18172See all my reviews

This was my favourite show bar none as i grew up in my early teens i started collecting videos and by my 20s turned to dvds .

The 1996 Christmas/New Year specials were the icing on the cake for any OFAH fan. I was made up.

But then we had to please the " it aint Christmas anymore " gang and make silly versions . With every newone more characters had died in real life.

Thats why no 10
