Sitcom Still Open All Hours – filmed in Doncaster – is continuing to see off its rivals, according to viewing figures.

The six-part series, outdoor scenes for which were filmed at the converted Beautique hair salon in Balby in September, has proved the most popular programme on the box for the third Sunday in a row.

The BBC1 show, starring comedy favourite Sir David Jason, has seen off the new series of ITV stalwart Foyle’s War, regularly drawing in five to six million viewers since its Boxing Day launch.

But audience numbers are drastically down on the 12.2 million who tuned in for a 2013 Christmas special.
