George makes several critical remarks on the Swiss in a few episodes, one of being that "they haven't been bothered to invent their own language". The Swiss do have their own language called Romansh, although it's not as common as the other languages spoken in Switzerland. See more »

Just brilliant!
6 November 2006 | by (Cardiff, Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

My family regard "Mr Don and Mr George" as one of the funniest programs ever, and I find it hard to understand how little success it achieved. Admittedly, the humour is very quirky, and often surreal, but I've seen little, before or since, that was just so funny it made you ache with laughter. The chemistry between Hunter and Doherty is perfect. With a low-budget set, and few other actors involved, it had to be. And this is one of its charms - no expensive production or smart locations - just two brilliant, and incredibly funny men playing it for all it's worth. Had it gone out on BBC1, I reckon it would have been massive. Anyway, we were fortunate enough to purchase the two VHS tapes (3 episodes each) during the short time they were available, but we've now virtually worn them out. I don't suppose these gems will ever make it onto DVD, but we can always hope. A true comedy classic if ever there was one.
