Not On Your Nellie Series 1 in March
Network have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Not On Your Nellie – The Complete First Series for 12th March 2007 priced at £12.99. Following on from her role in Nearest and Dearest, Hylda Baker stars as Northern battleaxe Nellie Pickersgill, who is summoned to London by her ailing father, Jed (John Barrett – Coronation Street, The Dustbinmen) to help run his pub – The Brown Cow.
With a diverse – and troublesome – clientele, and an aversion to drink herself, just how will the teetotal Nellie cope in this outstanding comedy that was a smash hit for ITV on its original 1974 transmission?
Written by the team behind Nearest and Dearest, Roy Bottomley and Tom Brennand, Not on Your Nellie – The Complete First Series also contains an episode of Nearest and Dearest, titled Far from the Madding Pong, as a special feature.
