This is an excellent example of 1970's sitcom at its best
6 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have always remembered this series so it is great to have it available on DVD. Looking at it again has confirmed that, yes it is dated, but it is also wonderful. I have read the books and thought they were great. The TV series is different but I think even better. I have seen a comment elsewhere that they were slow which I think is a recommendation. As an evocation of a different time, albeit a bit off off the wall, I think it is great. The humour is dark but gentle and the lines from series 1 programme 5 in the conversation about having "relations" with an ugly woman are priceless. I think it benefits from only having had 4 series - it is said that it was badly affected by having Last of the summer wine being similar and in competition with it but I think that LOSW is a good example of what can happen when a series goes on too long. Thankfully Tinniswood's efforts ended at the right time.
