H: before 1988 hours pub hours (excluding the dock area in London and Covent Garden) were:

1100hrs to 1400hrs then 1800hrs till 2230hrs (23.00) Saturdays.

But in those days pubs were real pubs--not plastic themed "swill" holes!

Pubs were not allowed to close for 24 hrs ever--now the publicans can have a day off.

Take another look at my post Fraz, and you'll see that it is indeed a saying. Click on the link and read it right through. There's quite a good explanation.

Perhaps I'm misreading what you want.

Cheers

The title is a British slang phrase meaning those who arrive earlier than is customary, particularly with regard to drinking in a pub. Until the law was changed in 1988 pubs in England closed in the afternoon (now most are open all day). Early Doors refers to customers who were waiting or arrived soon after the pub re-opened in the evening. An earlier use of the phrase (Edwardian) occurs in British theatres where a specific door, or set of doors, were opened early to allow a scramble for the "cheaper" unreserved space in the auditorium before the "more respectable" patrons arrived.

No not a sitcom -I'm sure it is a saying of some kind - it was used in the context of "these batsmen come out early doors...."
I was trying to find a reference to it or the origin.
found so far.
early doors can mean arriving at a show too early or premature ejaculation.
early taws means firing of marbles from the line which I guess could mean the same thing??

Fraz--you may have misheard--try "er indoors" referring to Her In Doors--as in wife/mistress.

(cockney slang--never from Blowers of course!)

He was probably a Pom, referring to a UK blog: http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/football/ear...s/article/5379/

TAWS is a landscape visualisation system, which is definitely beyond the grasp of most cricket commentators;
but it's "early days" yet, so they can still study some between overs and prove me wrong biggrin.gif

I was watching the IPL cricket last night and one of the commentators referred to the saying "early doors" is this right?
I thought it was "early taws"
