Storyline

The adventures of a gang of British workmen abroad. Combines black and white humour with moments of drama, poignancy and drunkenness. In series 1, the lads head to Germany seeking work, and are thrown together by virtue of shared nationality and a run-down wooden hut. The story follows the lads' relationships with women, Germans and each other, and their attempts at passing the time away from home, saving money and ordering food in a German curry house. The series ends with new employment legislation forcing some of the Brits having to choose between the UK and their new-found pleasures abroad. Two years later the gang are reunited for a second series, in which they travel to Wolverhampton to rebuild both the "magnificent seven" and Barry's home for his impending marriage. A further offer of work sees the lads head to a Derbyshire stately home in need of refurbishment. Here they fall foul of an irritable pub landlord, suspicious locals, a less than enlightened employer and the Inland ... Written by Mike Cryan

Greatest British comedy ever
29 August 1999 | by (Widnes, England) – See all my reviews



Auf Wiedersehen Pet is a story of the rise and fall of seven very different people. There are three Geordies, one Scouser, one Brummie, one Cockney and one from Bristol. Auf Wiedersehen Pet shows what life was really like for self - employed workers in the 1980's. The first series is set in Dusseldorf in Germany and it shows how the lads struggle along living in a wooden hut on a building site. The three Geordies are Oz, Neville and Dennis. Oz is the funniest of all, he is a bricklayer and loves to get drunk and have fights. Dennis is seen as the leader and has to sort out all the trouble caused, mainly by Oz. Neville hates being away from his wife and acts a good part as a home sick gadgie. From Bristol there is Bomber who likes a fight but is also a leadership figure. Wayne is a Cockney who spends all his free time chasing after women and looking in the mirror. Moxey is the Scouser who has bad acne and a tendency to start fires. Barry is the Brummie and was thought of as the boring one. Throughout the series the lads get up to a lot of mischief and have a few run ins with the police and punch ups in bars. ( along with a large intake of beer and Vindaloo's). All this results in the best British comedy of all time.
