Grace & Favour Cast Shot

The staff of the defunct Grace Brothers department store reunite to run a rural hotel in Grace & Favour, on DVD for the first time in the UK.

Ah those were the days, the days of a good British comedy that was funny for the right reasons.

We’ve just had the news in from Eureka Entertainment that they are releasing the 90s comedy, Grace & Favour, the innuendo-laden BBC TV classic and spin-off to Are You Being Served? from comedy-writer legends David Croft and Jeremy Lloyd, on DVD for the first time in UK from 23 May 2016

Grace & Favour is probably one of the most beloved British sitcoms of all time, the show which was released internationally as Are You Being Served? Again!, reunites the dysfunctional Grace Brothers sales team, Mollie Sugden, John Inman, Frank Thornton, Wendy Richard and Nicholas Smith, for more misadventures and innuendo-laden squabbling.

After the death of “Young Mr. Grace” in an unfortunate scuba-diving incident, the staff at Grace Brothers find that their pension fund has been unwisely invested in a country manor house, currently operating as a hotel. With no other options, Mr. Humphries, Mrs. Slocombe, Captain Peacock, Miss Brahms and Mr. Rumbold all reluctantly team up and attempt to turn the hotel into a profitable business venture.
