A spin-off 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 to scale the social heights – arranging everything from intimate dinner parties to glittering charity galas and swinging teenage boutiques.
Featuring scripts from an award-winning team that included Coronation Street contributors Harry Driver and Vince Powell, as well as 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 of the Rover's Return – also stars as canteen manageress Mrs. Edgeley, with Dad's Army favourites John Le Mesurier and John Laurie, and Coronation Street stars Julie Goodyear and Amanda Barrie also making appearances.
