Innovative Comedy (at the time)
8 February 2001 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I remember this Channel 4 comedy well. Back in '83 it was quite a daring show and I found it at times hilarious. The title was of course taken from the motto of the SAS which around then was famous for storming the Iranian Embassy in London. The same title was also used for a rather politically dubious film about the SAS, however for this comedy it was used in a more thankfully 'ironic' sense. It's been a long time since any repeats have been screened so I guess that what seemed daring then might be a little tame now.
