Till Death... is an ITV sitcom that aired from 22 May to 3 July 1981. In 1981, the television sitcom Till Death Us Do Part (BBC, 1965–1975) was picked up by ITV company ATV and brought back for a further six episodes, this time under the title Till Death... as the title Till Death Us Do Part was controlled by the BBC.


The show saw the return of East End bigot Alf Garnett (Warren Mitchell). He and his wife Else (Dandy Nichols) have now retired to Eastbourne. They are sharing a bungalow with Min (Patricia Hayes) following the death of her husband Bert. Mike and Rita, characters from Till Death Us Do Part, were no longer main characters. Una Stubbs returned for three episodes as Rita together with her son Michael, but although her layabout husband Mike was talked about, he was never seen.

Michael (born in Till Death Us Do Part in September 1972) had seemingly become a victim of soap opera rapid aging syndrome as he had reached the age of 16 and become a punk rocker, much to Alf's dismay.

The show was not as successful as its predecessor, mainly because of the huge differences from Till Death Us Do Part. When ATV's successor, Central Television, began transmission in 1982, they came to the decision to discontinue the series.
