Beautiful. And do you know the really odd thing? I couldn’t picture Grandad’s face until I saw the hat, and his entire appearance and way of speaking came back immediately.

Something we should bear in mind – the power of those personal symbols to those who have known the deceased.

I don’t feel it takes anything away, because it seems right in character and situation. The whole damn thing is pitch-perfect. A reminder,amongst all the praise for American and now Danish TV, that we can make superlative scenes when we concentrate.I bet even those who don’t like the series, or David Jason, would have to admit that the scene with Trig and Del is flawless.

I love this. Unutterably sad. Beautifully observed. So restrained.
Barely funny, but the beeb producer put in a big laugh for the ‘I love a good funeral’ …………. to spare us?
