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 »

Dangerously funny bizarre exotica.
5 April 2002 | by (Barnsley,England) – See all my reviews

Not Only But Also... achieved the holy comedic grail of appealing to a mass prime team audience whilst still being breath-takingly original. The paralysing funny, but extraordinarily mundane, flat hat and macintoshed characters of Pete N Dud, philosophise about the universe and all it's contents, and how they have the nerve to intrude on the duo's trivial lives, all fuelled by vast quantities of doorstep thick sarnies and murky beer, devoured in a variety of locations, the zoo, the art gallery, the pub, even heaven.

A mixture of script and improvisation creates a joyous spontaneious anarchy between Peter Cook, Dudley Moore, and the audience, an electricity which takes them all on a delightfully unpredictable ride through the esoteric recesses of Cook's mind, with inspired dud hanging on whilst sporting a look of horrific fascination - only by his ace clown's fingertips. You could write a series about this series. Highly quotable, dangerously funny, and that's just the Pete N Dud dialogues. Bizarre exotica which also includes leaping nuns.
