Created by Norman Hudis, who scripted the earliest Carry On films, this popular sitcom reunited him with some of the films' most charismatic and best-loved stars, including Hattie Jacques, Charles Hawtrey, Joan Sims, and Norman Rossington.
Enjoying a highly popular run in the early 1960s, Our House centres on the comic interactions between the contrasting characters who share a large house together. They include a librarian who transforms into a foghorn outside the hushed confines of her workplace (Hattie Jacques); an easy-going oddball employed by the local rates office (Charles Hawtrey); a woman with a slightly alarming employment record (Joan Sims); and a law student (Norman Rossington) in thrall to his overbearing father. Deryck Guyler (Please Sir!) and Roy Hudd guest-star.
Of the 39 original episodes, only three survive in the archive. Unseen for over fifty years, what remains of Our House are essential viewing for all Carry On aficionados and lovers of vintage British comedy.
