Radio Alcock.
9 October 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

My rating may seem a little high, but this was the episode that got me hooked, I think this one is absolutely hilarious. Some of the scenes are so funny, Marigold singing Only a glass of champagne for one, and the best of all where Marigold radios back to Richard, the misunderstanding is hilarious.

You cannot fault Marigold's optimism, match making one week, tour holidays, and now mini cabs. She's a wonderful character, Beryl Reid at her absolute best, quirky, slightly eccentric, but so funny.

It's crammed with one liners, terrific deliveries and overall is genuine fun. I love it.

If you want to go to town, our mini cabs will run you down.

Class. 9/10
