Arthur Lowe played Leonsrd Swindley in three different shows: Firstly,in Coronation Street,then in a half-hour sitcom called Pardon the Expression (two series 1965-66),then Turn Out the Lights (six 55-minute episodes,1967).
TVBrain rightly states that all episodes of TOTL are missing,which always seemed a pity. I've finally bought Network's complete set of Pardon the Expression,and was delighted to find that the 2 May 1966 episode The Ghost of Batsworth Castle is essentially a tryout for the later series,with Swindley and his boss Wally Hunt,played by Robert Dorning, spooked by ghosts in a stately home. The actors reprised their roles in TOTL.
I'm pretty pleased about this, since it gives me an impression,at least,of how the lost series was.
