Excellent series, shame about the lack of DVD's
16 March 2018 | by lesliedyche-78964See all my reviews

I have watched this series from start to finish many times, and always find it very funny every time. Cannot understand why people should want to give it a negative rating. Especially the one where they obviously don't know what they're talking about, as they even mention a completely fictitious TV channel in ITV7???????
