This little gem captured a spot in my memory I thought was deleted but on buying it and watching again I realised how funny this is.This is a typical old English sitcom that uses characters instead of plot. Marvellous cast and exceptional comic timing from the brilliant Ken Jones.Crammed full of laugh out loud moments but not a single piece of smut or innuendo.Office politics run rife and one- upmanship take over as I did not see ANY work done at all.This could NEVER be re-made and SHOULD never be attempted. This for me has better characters then Rising Damp and if Leonard Rositter was here would have topped it off. Paranoia and boot licking typically let us in to the madness of office politics.Bought this as a box set of 3 series and smiled all the way between laughing. What an awesome legacy for these amazing actors to leave the viewer and writers to be.Revisiting all my comedy memories on DVD and this is as good as it gets. Nearest and Dearest..Steptoe and Son...Dear John...Rising Damp...In Sickness...Rab. C. Nesbit...They just DON'T make them like this any more.
