Following the end of Queenie’s Castle Yorkshire TV came up with a new sitcom for Diana Dors, also not without easy laughs but equally lacking in subtlety.

On All Our Saturdays she played the no-nonsense Di Dorkins – known as ”Big D” – who inherits a men’s underwear factory (Garsley Garments) in Yorkshire along with the firm’s Rugby League team which regularly sits at the bottom of the local league.

Tougher than her players, but determined to make men of them, Di takes over management of the team, renames them ‘The Frilly Things’ and sets about the job of winning matches at any cost.

Tony Caunter, also from Queenie’s Castle, supported.

Only six episodes were made and Dors never did another sitcom.
