Default Maplins returns

Whilst I always thought Maplin's goods were over priced, they did have some useful stuff, and as I do not trade with Amazon unless I have to, I welcome its return. As the buyer is Peter Jones of "Dragons Den" repute, who seems savvy on what people want, I expect to see it improve from it's former self.
Good luck with the new venture.

Never realised that it was set in a place called Maplins. A brilliant comedy with some great characters. Was always a must to be watched. Some great old school actors who were probably stage trained, but who never were seen again. I can only recall Su Pollard and Ruth Madoc being in anything else after Hi De Hi finished.

I remember Kenneth Connor from the 'Carry On' films, but I think they were earlier.
