Come Back Mrs Noah was a sitcom by Jeremy Lloyd and David Croft, who wanted to make a space sitcom before everyone else started doing it, after the huge success of Star Wars. Given carte blanche, they wrote a vehicle for Mollie Sugden.
Here’s how the pilot was received in December of 1977 by Kenneth Burgess in the Coventry Evening Telegraph.
Nonetheless, a full series was comissioned, and previewed in The Daily Mirror, by Ken Irwin, on the 3rd June 1978.
But still the reviews were lukewarm. Like this one, from Ian Mollison, in the Aberdeen Evening Express, published on the 29th July 1978.
For a sitcom that was so roundly derided, it had a bit more travel tha you might expect. At least according to David Croft himself. A year after it was broadcast, this article appeared in the Daily Mirror.
I can’t find out if a US pilot was ever made, but I’d love to see it if it was.
