Mrs Caldicot's Cabbage Wars
Time Out saysAn old biddy campaigns against cabbage in an old folk's home. Not exactly The Shawshank Redemption, but also not quite as unpromising as it might first appear. After the death of her oppressive husband, Mrs Caldicot (Collins in a hand-tailored role) is packed off to a rest home by their uncaring son Capaldi. With the help of a kind nurse, she gets off the pills and into action, fighting a regime that stupefies its patients with drugs to save on cost and effort. It turns out that cabbage is just the starting point. (From a novel by Vernon Coleman.) ASm.
