Pardon The Expression - Series 2 DVD release:

Press release by Network DVD:-

Arthur Lowe stars in Network DVD's release of Coronation Street spin-off, PARDON THE EXPRESSION – THE COMPLETE SECOND SERIES (12), released on 24 th August 2009, RRP £34.99 as a 4-disc set.

It follows the mixed fortunes of former Weatherfield boutique owner Leonard Swindley (Arthur Lowe - Dad's Army). In his position as assistant manager at a Dobson and Hawks chain store, the punctilious but ambitious Mr Swindley seizes every opportunity that might afford him the chance to scale the social heights, arranging everything from intimate dinner parties to glittering charity galas in the pursuit of promotion…

Featuring scripts from an award-winning team that included Coronation Street contributors Harry Driver and Vince Powell, PARDON THE EXPRESSION helped to define the type of comic role for which BAFTA winner Arthur Lowe would be most fondly remembered: that of the pompous, quietly floundering buffoon. Betty Driver - soon to be installed behind the bar of the Rover's Return - stars as canteen manageress Mrs. Edgeley, and Robert Dorning joins the cast as Swindley's boss Walter Hunt; Dad's Army favourites John Le Mesurier and John Laurie and Coronation Street stars Julie Goodyear and Amanda Barrie are also among the famous faces appearing in this second series, originally screened in 1966.
