brilliant
4 July 2008 | by keith-s-russellSee all my reviews

I too taped the 1982 BBC1 show, and still have it. Unfortunately, I was silly enough at the time to stop the recording when Slattery sang. Halfway through I wished I hadn't done that, and so don't have most of his song. I did fortunately then resume the recording. To the best of my knowledge the show was never repeated by the BBC,which is a shame in my opinion.

To add to the other reviewers highlights : my favourite sketch is Stephen Fry sitting in a chair just reading from Bram Stoker's book of "Dracula" to the camera. He takes on the Dracula and Jonathan Harker roles when reading their lines. Absolutely brilliant and hilarious.It was quite obvious that Stephen Fry would be a big star, his talent really showed through, as did Hugh Laurie's.
