The first full season of BBC One’s comedy series Still Open All Hours will premiere on Boxing Day (Friday December 26th) at 6:25pm, before seguing to its regular Sunday night 7:30pm time-slot on December 28th, it has been announced.
Penned by Roy Clarke, Still Open All Hours follows Granville, who some years back inherited the shop from his beloved but miserly Uncle Arkwright. He now runs it with his son Leroy, a cheerful, good-looking lad with more female admirers than Granville ever had. The series follows a day in the life of the shop and its customers including retired Nurse Gladys Emmanuel and the Black Widow.
Initially piloted last year as a one-off special before subsequently being picked up to series with a six episode order, Still Open All Hours is a follow up to the classic 1970s series Open All Hours. The comedy is produced by BBC In House Comedy and stars Sir David Jason, James Baxter, Lynda Barron, Stephanie Cole and Maggie Ollerenshaw. Benidorm star Tim Healy is joining the cast as a series regular for the first season.
