All seven episodes of the 1980s ITV sitcom starring Thora Hird as indefatigable Salvation Army Captain Emily Ridley. Written by Dick Sharples and co-starring Patsy Rowlands and Geoffrey Bayldon, the series follows Emily as she attempts to bring her own unique brand of salvation to the quiet little Yorkshire town of Brigthorpe. Episodes are: 'The Anniversary', 'The Arrangement', 'The Exchange', 'The Visit', 'The Proposal', 'The Rivals' and 'The Wedding'.
Anything with the late, great comedy actress Thora Hird is worth seeing but she is brilliant in this as the Salvation Army Captain Emily Ridley, a lady who means well but often causes much trouble. Thora is joined by Patsy Rowlands (another comedy veteran) and an actress called Roseamund Greenwood, this trio of ladies are posted to a small quiet Yorkshire town, Emily Ridley is convinced that this innocent place is in desperate need of salvation. Episode four is the one that stood in my mind and it's my favourite in the set, an amusing story. But then again, all seven episodes made me laugh.
'Hallelujah' was, in my opinion, a quality sitcom and one to look out for if you are a fan of British comedy series. I have yet to see series two but plan to buy it eventually.
