However reaction to it was so positive that the edition was held back to start off a proper series once a further seven episodes had been written. See more »

It Ain't Half Funny
10 January 2021 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

I enjoyed this series when it was originally broadcast. As there is no likelihood of it being broadcast again,I bought The box?box set and have just finished it.It is very funny,almost as good as Dads Army.It does have problems. Michael Bates,blacked up,as the bearer, makes it unacceptable for broadcastimg,as does the homophobic rants by the Sergeant Major. Furthermore it has to be said that many of the Indian characters are drawn in an unsympathetic light..
