By the time these final two series of ’Allo ‘Allo came around, even the most ardent fan of the show would have to concede that it had had its day,
Many of the original cast had moved on, and even the original Herr Fleck, as played by Richard Gibson, had been replaced by the ninth series,

However, in hindsight, these last two series still have quite a bit to offer,
Running to a combined thirteen episodes, and set a couple of years after the events of series seven, it finds ’Allo ‘Allo finally moving the British airmen on, but still gives lots of space for Gorden Kaye as Rene and Carmen Silvera as Edith to shine,
With the supporting cast too firing on all cylinders, there are enough laughs to patch over the weak spots,

Furthermore, the end of series nine does also give ’Allo ‘Allo something that many sitcoms of the era never had the chance of : an ending,
It gives some nice closure to one of the best sitcoms Britain produced in the 1980s and early 90s, and rounds the show off neatly,
Thus, while these two series aren’t vintage ’Allo ‘Allo, they do contain any episodes that any fan of the show simply won’t want to miss,
