Nah,leave well alone,I say.These kind of things are done with the best of intentions no doubt,but it's like Open All Hours being re-booted,with Granville in charge.Correct me if I'm wrong,but that is pretty poor,and it's nothing to do with the great David Jason,it's just that in this day and age,in my opinion, it doesn't work.The original programmes are great,and very of their time,it doesn't work in the modern setting.
Leave well alone.
