If you're a fan of the Are You Being Served? television series, this is a must have for your collection. Stars John Inman, Mollie Sugden, Wendy Richard, Trevor Bannister, and Frank Thornton. Synopsis: the staff at Grace Bros. Department Store are getting ready to go on a group holiday to Spain, where they are booked at the Costa Plonka. As always, work is never simple, with Mr. Lucas and Mr. Humphries trying to sell a pair of trousers to an Arab sheik, then Mrs. Slocombe must get a proper passport photo and avoid the staff nurse at the same time. When they finally arrive at the hotel they are informed that their rooms are unavailable and are offered "tenty-houses". At dinner a note from Mr. Lucas ends up creating a world of misunderstandings, and Mr. Humphries becomes paranoid that Captain Peacock will try to slip into his tent. Chaos continues when Miss Brahms encounters a "long squiggly thing" in her tent, and the rebel leader, Cesar, tries to seduce Mrs. Slocombe, but ends up chasing Mr. Humphries while he's in drag. Andrew Sachs (Fawlty Towers) also stars as the hotel manager, Don Carlos Bernardo. The DVD captures the audio and video very well, but the only other feature on it is a movie trailer, which is disappointing. But it's still worth ordering and enjoying.
