Saving souls has never been so funny.
Beloved actress Thora Hird--honored for lifetime achievement by the British National Comedy Awards--stars as Emily Ridley, a feisty Salvation Army captain who refuses to go gently into retirement. Realizing that modern-day sinners no longer respond to her hellfire-and-brimstone brand of evangelism, Emily’s superiors give her one last chance. So Emily and eager new recruit Sister Alice (Patsy Rowlands) head for Brigthorpe and Blackwick--quiet, working-class Yorkshire towns that the good captain envisions as Sodom and Gomorrah. There they lay siege to the pubs, strip clubs, and dens of iniquity--not to mention the Anglicans, Methodists, and other competitors in the soul-saving mission--with hilarious results.
Full of gentle, affectionate humor, this classic British series serves up laughs as heartwarming as a steaming bowl of soup kitchen fare.

I loved the funny depiction of the Salvation Army. My great-grandma was in the 'Sally Ann', and dragged my granddad and his brothers to play in the brass band in England. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Susan Taylor
I am still laughing at some of the one liners in this series. Only the British can do comedy with such hilarious subtly. Highly recommended!Published 10 months ago by mounthood
Delightful old sitcom which should sit well with everyone in this polarized world. Bible thumping galor, but with broadmindedness and innocence. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Marni C.

I have watched these dvds at least twice, and most likely, I'll watch a 3rd time. I had to watch about 3 episodes before I could get into the characters. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Nana Jane
