Does anyone remember Damaris Hayman in this great show?
The superb and gifted Damaris Hayman was in at least two of these episodes. One particular show had her as a fifties 'teddy girl' complete with huge swirling skirt and pony tail! It was fabulously funny! If only the Beeb would release these great shows.. Damaris a great character actress who had a affinity for upper middle class parts like prim neighbours/lady magistrate type parts, but her comical delivery was priceless. She was in countless cameo roles in 60's/70's UK comedy television shows. One very memorable TV part was as Miss Hawthorne in 'Doctor Who' (1971) during Jon Pertwee's era, "The Daemons". I would be happy to hear from fans who think likewise.
