Dinner for one (Same as every year)

I don't see this classic on the local TV schedules so enjoy a bit of tradition, with Miss Sophie, Sir Toby, Admiral von Schneider, Mr Pommeroy, Mr Winterbottom and , of course,James.

Although the exact history of the play doesn't seem too clear what is certain is that the rights eventually belonged to Freddy Frinton and will always be most associated with him. It was first performed on German television and is still a massive hit there every year. Freddy Frinton was "the superlative stage drunk", fascinating as he was a confirmed teetotaler ... and played James! I colour version was scheduled to be shot in 1968 but Frinton had a heart attack just three weeks before filming was to begin.

Thanks, now I've seen it 4 times.

@cstrachan - Glad you enjoyed the 'nostalgia'
@aksn1p3r - I hope there is no permanent scarring as a result of seeing 'Dinner for one' four times
