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.

This series was quite cute. I kind of wish that some of the episodes/stories had developed further (so we know what happened to certain people in various episodes). Read morePublished 7 months ago by Victoria L. Woitzel

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 22 months ago by Susan Taylor
