very funny original show
16 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Yes I agree!

This was an incredibly funny and clever show, although it is many years since it was first broadcast, and I have never seen it advertised as being repeated again.

Very witty and genuinely laugh out loud. It's a real shame it has never made DVD! Every so often I'll look to see but always disappointment, I guess it was one of those gems that has to remain undiscovered by many!

Written by Steven Moffat who went on to write a couple of the new series of Doctor Who's and who also wrote Coupling, though I thought Joking apart was funnier because of the "always ending up in a situation"!
