Item Description

George and Mildred was a British sitcom produced by Thames Television that aired from 1976 to 1979. It was a spin-off of Man About the House and starred Brian Murphy and Yootha Joyce as an ill-matched married couple, George and Mildred Roper. The premise of this series had George and Mildred leaving their flat as depicted in Man About the House and moving to a modern, upmarket housing estate, to the horror of their snobbish neighbour Jeffrey Fourmile, a real-estate agent who despairs that the Roper's presence will devalue his home.

It was written by Brian Cooke and Johnnie Mortimer . Like many sitcoms of the day, George and Mildred was also turned into a film which was dedicated to actress Yootha Joyce who suddenly died in 1980 just as the cast had looked so forward to recording a sixth series at the time.

George and Mildred Roper have left their old house after receiving a compulsory purchase order from the Council and move to 46 Peacock Crescent in Hampton Wick . While Mildred enjoys moving up in the world socially, lazy and unemployed George remains true to his working class roots and also continues to show a lack of interest in sexual relations with Mildred.

George and Mildred's yuppie next-door neighbours are Jeffrey Fourmile, a snobbish estate agent , and his wife Ann. They have a young son called Tristram, who gets on well with Mildred and George, and in series 3 a second child called Tarquin is born. The Conservative supporting Jeffrey strongly dislikes George, who frequently annoys Jeffrey.

Mildred's snobbish sister Ethel and her wealthy husband Humphrey occasionally visit, as does Mildred's mother. Mildred often makes subtle digs at Ethel's age or social status when Ethel visits. George's friend Jerry, a jack-of-all-trades, also visits, much to Mildred's annoyance. Jerry is fond of referring to Mildred as "Mildew".

In the first series, Mildred buys a Yorkshire Terrier called Truffles (played by dog actor Pussy Galore).

An important Note To USA & Canadian Buyers

 

( American and Canadian buyers should note that although the discs are Multi-Region formatted and will work in Region 1 format they are actually encoded for PAL transmission, therefore it is the buyer’s/ potential buyer’s responsibility to check their equipment is compatible before purchasing - as refunds will not be given due to Copy & Watch being possible.

 

With this in mind most modern/ quality NTSC players in America and Canada will still play PAL discs all the same - but this is a decision the overseas buyer will have to make.

 

Also, should you really wish to purchase but think that your standard DVD player won’t be compatible then the DVD’s will still work in any PC DVD-ROM drives worldwide. )
