‘Allo ‘Allo! Series 07 Overview


Introduction

‘Allo ‘Allo! is a British sitcom television series created by David Croft and Jeremy Lloyd, starring Gorden Kaye, and originally broadcast on BBC One.

Outline

There is a gap of fifteen months between the broadcasting dates of series 06 and 07.

Gorden Kaye suffered serious head injuries in a car accident in January 1990; causing him to lose some of his memory. As Kaye was slow to make a full recovery, the whole show’s future was in doubt. Even when the seventh series did come about, it brought some changes.

David Croft left the series, with Paul Adam taking over the co-writing; Mike Stephens became the producer for the show; Robin Parkinson took over the role of Ernest LeClerc from Derek Royle, who had died in 1990; Roger Kitter replaced Gavin Richards as Bertorelli; and the series also saw the reappearance of Sam Kelly as Captain Hans Geering, though only for one episode.

Unlike in previous series, there was no exclamation mark when the title “‘Allo ‘Allo” was shown on screen.
