Sir David Jason in Closed All Hours

From the BBC

BBC One controller Charlotte Moore said it made BBC One's Christmas schedule "suddenly feel complete".

In the original programme, which consisted of four series, Arkwright was the miserly Doncaster shop owner and his nephew Granville was his put-upon shop assistant.

In the new one-off episode, Granville is working in the Wm Morrison's around the corner, after the shop became non-viable and Awkwright sold it to a chain of tanning salons run by a bloke in Huddersfield.
