One of only two spin-off series from Coronation Street, this sitcom follows the mixed fortunes of former Weatherfield boutique owner Leonard Swindley (Arthur Lowe). In his new position as assistant manager at a Dobson and Hawks chain store, the punctilious but ambitious Mr. Swindley seizes upon every opportunity that might afford him the chance to scale the social heights – from organising strategic civic functions to securing lucrative new orders for the company.
Featuring scripts from an award-winning team that included Coronation Street contributors Harry Driver, Vince Powell, Geoffrey Lancashire and noted playwright Jack Rosenthal, Pardon the Expression helped to define the type of comic role for which BAFTA winner Arthur Lowe would be most fondly remembered: that of the pompous, quietly floundering buffoon. Betty Driver – soon to be installed behind the bar f the Rover’s Return – also stars as canteen manageress Mrs. Edgeley in this first series of the popular sitcom, originally screened in 1965.
