A classic Irish farce
16 October 1998 | by (London) – See all my reviews

A superb and hilariously scripted rendition of the Somerville & Ross classics, set in turn of the century Southern Ireland. The locations are magnificent and the episodes remain remarkably faithful to the original stories. Peter Bowles is peerless at playing the hapless magistrate, Major Sinclair Yeates. The unique "Slipper" is brought to his larger than life self by the magnificent Niall Tobin and Bryan Murray excels as the raffish Flurry Knox. This series of approximately 5 hours of videos is an unparalleled, if somewhat over-idealised vignette of rural Ireland one hundred years ago.
