Alcock and Gander

1 9 7 2 (UK)
6 x 30 minute episodes

Another ITV comedy from the team of Johnnie Mortimer and Brian Cooke.


Mrs Marigold Alcock (Beryl Reid) runs her late husband’s business ”empire”, The Alcock Group of Companies – including such highly dubious companies as Fly-by-night Tours and the Tom O’Thimble Lucky Pixie shop – from two seedy rooms above a Soho strip club in London.

She is aided and abetted by trusty old retainer Ernest, and former student Richard Gander (fast-rising comedy actor Richard O’Sullivan).
