    Ronnie Corbett is a true comedy legend and look forward to his return to tv this Christmas. I always thought Ronnie Barker was even funnier though and one of my all-time classic comedy programmes is Open All Hours.

    This looks like it's gonna be the best show on TV this Christmas. Looks like a lot of all the old jokes, but modernised.

    X-Box = Eggs Box (360 = £3.60)

    Ronnie Barker was a genius. Together, they were great.

    I can't wait!

    Good on him!
    I, like almost everyone else in Britain, grew up with the Two Ronnies and Corbett is often left in Barker's shadow (No pun intented). I think he's great in his own right and should without a doubt be working on TV if he thinks he's still up to it at his age. :D

    I will also watch it. He looks on form as I have seen him in several interviews (including The One Show) recently.

    It was as expected - a welcome light hearted comical turn. Good on yer Ronnie!
