Irascible Brighton pensioner Henry, delightfully played by Simon Callow, is back as the senior-citizen sitcom returns for a full series following last year’s initial three episodes.

Money is the theme of this opener, as Henry’s daughter Cath (Anna Crilly) faces eviction, while his friend Charles (Bill Paterson) appears to have abandoned his hippy convictions after inheriting some money.

Bankers and estate agents are on the receiving end of Henry’s wrath as he sets about raising funds, and there are touching moments as he sits at home chatting to the urn containing his late wife’s ashes.

The soundtrack’s pretty good, too.
