DAWN FRENCH is just delightful in these wonderfully campy send-ups. The direction, writing and art direction as simply edible.
These are the kinds of comedy programs that would never survive in America. It's a shame...America always thinks it has the last word on everything, doesn't it? Not on comedy or actors - that's for sure. This program is a tribute to the slew of wonderful programs which the UK and the BBC crank out with such style.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that TONY DOW was a director of these programs. I am glad he has continued to work and develop his talent.
I can't wait to see these episodes on DVD.
