In 1980 Channel 10 brought John Inman to Australia for a localised version of Are You Being Served? Down Under…..
It starred Inman as Mr. Humphries alongside a local cast: June Bronhill as Mrs. Crawford (a copy of Mrs. Slocombe), Reg Gillam as Captain Wagstaff (a copy of Captain Peacock), Shane Bourne as Mr. Randel (a copy of Mr. Lucas) and Christine Amor as Ms. Nicholls (a copy of Miss Brahms).
Writer Jeremy Lloyd adapted episodes for the show from his own scripts from the British original.
Abigail even guest starred in an episode, later saying, “I took this role because I very much wanted to work with John Inman and I have a high regard for the series itself. Besides, I thought it would be a fun proposition.”
It ran for 16 episodes.
