Queenie's Castle: The Complete Series
Diana Dors stars as glamorous matriarch Queenie Shepherd, who rules the roost in Margaret Rose House in the Buckingham Flats development in Yorkshire, sharing her home with her three wayward princelings Raymond, Douglas and Bunny and brother-in-law Jack. While Queenie’s husband is mysteriously absent, her beloved boys are involved in all manner of dodgy activities and no Shepherd is a stranger to the local magistrates’ court; in fact, there are quite a few residents - neighbour Mrs. Petty for one - who would be heartily relieved to see the back of them... although the landlord of The Builders’ Arms would probably be forced to seek an alternative income!
Coronation Street stars Lynne Perrie - as the aptly named Mrs. Petty - and Bryan Mosley also appear alongside Eastenders’ Tony Caunter in this raucous Yorkshire Television sitcom from Keith Waterhouse and Willis Hall (Billy Liar, Budgie). Cut from the same cloth as Shameless, this release contains every episode of Queenie’s Castle, originally screened between 1970 and 1972.
