Storyline

Not Only...But Also, most famously showcased Peter Cook and Dudley Moore in there so-called 'Dagenham dialogues' in which Pete (a nasal know-all who has utter confidence in his surreal and ill-informed philosophies on life) and Dud (credulous, dim-witted and scruffy) discuss all manner of subjects, bedecked in cloth caps and Macs.

Trivia

Most of "Not Only... But Also..." was erased by the BBC under their policy of wiping master videotapes (which at that time were expensive) for reuse. Only eight of the original twenty-two episodes survive complete. Peter Cook and Dudley Moore had offered to buy the BBC new tapes, but they were refused. Compilations use material from foreign networks' copies and remaining 16mm film inserts. See more »

Not Only Dudley Moore but Also Peter Cook
10 September 2001 | by (Int he Pub, England) – See all my reviews

Not only But Also is a turning point in British Comedy. It can be said and believed that it was The Goons who started Satire in Britain and made popular the way we laugh at things. Well it WAS The Goons there at the begining. But they merely planted the Seeds, and what grew was the bastard child that became Pete and Dud. And with them came Not Only But Also. You may be a fan of Dudley Moore's solo excursions in Hollywood [10,Arthur, Micki+Maude] and detest Peter Cook because of the dire solo work he done in later life . On the other hand you may be greatly irritated by Dudley Moore,hating his solo excursions into Hollywood and be a fan of the genius and wit, and father of Alternative Comedy, Peter Cook and love his stuff [Derek and Clive, Peter Cook and Co, The Secret Policemans Ball]. Whatever camp you happen to be in Not Only But Also is worth a look. There are things in here that were never seen before, nor can be done as funnily again. My personal favourites include, The Alan A'Dale Sketch, Pete and Dud in the Pub, Pete and Dud in the Zoo, The Leaping Nuns sketch, The Glid of Gloob and of course Superthunderstingcar, an hillarious mock on the over hyped work of Geery Anderson. Also watch out for the likes of John Lennon, Peter Sellers et all making fleeting appearances. One more thing, if you watched this and was offended by ANYTHING, do NOT, i repeat NOT, watch under any circumstances ANY tapes or videos of two individuals known as DEREK and Clive. Who remarkably look rather similar to Pete and Dud. Doubt they are any relation though. Thank you!
