Product Description

Hugely successful sitcom that ran for eight years, from 1985 to 1992, the sequel to Till Death Do Us Part.Written by Johnny Speight, it follows the fortunes (or mis-fortunes) of bigoted pensioner Alf Garnet, played brilliantly by Warren Mitchell. We see Alf uprooted from his Wapping home and re-located to a West Ham council flat and follow all the drama and problems he brings upon himself by his very opinionated and controversial views on.. well, everything.

Series 1
In Sickness and in Health is the 1985 sequel to Till Death Us Do Part, which found Alf and Else relocated to a flat in the East End, but the curmudgeonly old git still had plenty to moan about. His pension, the unions, having to push his wheelchair-bound wife around and, horror upon horror, their black, gay council home help, Winston - the list is endless...

Series 2
The second series of the Til Death Us Do Part sequel might have missed the late Dandy Nichols, but the loud-mouthed Alf Garnett is joined by a host of other great character actors including Carmel McSharry, Patricia Hayes, Irene Handl, Arthur English and Ken Campbell. Else has died and Alf is left to cope with life as a widower. Now he has to get by on a smaller pension, cook his own Sunday dinner and put up with Mrs. Hollingbery, his landlady who lives in the upstairs flat. Alf's not exactly alone, he's still got his drinking friend Arthur; exasperated neighbours, the Johnsons; Winston, the black (and gay!)social worker; his daughter, Rita; batty ex-neighbour Min and her senile sister Gwenneth and Mrs Hollingbery, who might even cook for him - if he can prove himself "handy around the house"!

Series 3
The third series of the Til Death Us Do Part sequel found Alf Garnett in splendid form; giving out to anyone who’ll listen (and some who won’t) on the injustices suffered by this particular senior citizen. This series finds Warren Mitchell once again surrounded by great character actors including Carmel McSharry, Arthur English and Ken Campbell as well as Patricia Hayes and Irene Handl – and also features a special appearance by Spike Milligan as the volatile van driver, Fancy Fred.

Series 4
The fourth series of the Til Death Us Do Part sequel finds Alf warming to the idea of marriage to Mrs Hollingsbury. First he’ll need the approval of her brother, who lives in Australia, so get ready for the views of one angry Englishman Down Under…

Series 5
The fifth series of the Til Death Us Do Part sequel finds Alf Garnett in full flow. Pensions, poll tax, power costs and the price of a pint are all on his list as life in the 1990s begins to bite.

Series 6

After two years off the air, this sixth and final series of the classic Alf Garnett comedy series was broadcast in 1992. It finds the miserly old whinger, having endured a lifetime of poverty, finally becoming rich. So is he is happy with his new-found wealth? Of course not, it’s Alf!

Christmas Specials
These Christmas specials, broadcast between 1985 and 1990, find Alf in great miserable form and include his last Christmas with Else; his short lived career as a store Santa; his Christmas in hospital for a hip replacement and a disastrous wedding day that leaves Mrs. Hollingbery in a less than festive mood…

5.0 out of 5 stars a classic british sit-com 16 Jan 2012
Format:DVD
in sickness.. is a truly classic comedy up there with steptoe, rising damp, one foot.. e.t.c was like watchin for 1st time its been that long. shame it doesn't get repeated for new viewers - probably p.c reasons but like rigsby in rising damp, alf garnet is shown 2 be a fool and u laugh at him rather than with him when it comes 2 his outspoken views. overall great series, great box-set and great service from amazon. highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old fashioned laughter 19 Dec 2011
Format:DVD
Bought this as nostalgia, not meant as offensive material, good old fun before everything became political. Have watched this with friends from several different countries and we have laughed together, pleased that things have moved on and progressed.

5.0 out of 5 stars British comedy at it's best. 20 Nov 2012
By Pheonix
Format:DVD
Wonderful,wonderful show.Will never be shown on TV again,sadly.So i suggest you snap up this boxset ASAP.

And as far as i can tell,nothing has been cut out either (unlike many BBC DVDs - Fools & Horses & Some Mothers Do Ave Em,for example).

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars British comedy classic 11 Nov 2011
Format:DVD
The first thing I need to clear up is this show is NOT racist but IS about bigoted characters and as such is not very polically correct. Alf Garnett was created Johnny Speight to show how some people can be so bigotted, He was not intended to be likeable and in fact overall in the show he comes off worse through the whole series. Warren Mitchell who played Alf has always said it annoyed him when people came to him and said how great Alf was saying what he did, he said they were not getting the joke and in effect the joke was on them.

Now to the series itself, for me the show is made by the characters around him in particular his gay Lodger Winston(Marigold) played by Eamonn Walker who is just superb, and also Carmel McSharry as Mrs Hollingbery who has a love hate relationship with Alf and Arthur English who appear's as Alfs best mate in the first 5 series. Alfs wife Else played by Dandy nichols appears in first series, But sadly Dandy died at end of the first run. This changed the dynamic of the future series but did allow for characters such as Marigold and Mrs Hollingbery to shine through.

You will not see this show much on the TV and yes its very policically incorrect, But its also a shining light in comedy and shows how people can be so bigotted because they lack some of knowledge or abilty to understand how wrong they are.

Enjoy

Brilliant Alf at his best not for the PC police, but taken in the right context it will make the most serious of people laugh.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am black and love the dvd!! 31 Aug 2012
Format:DVD
Firstly comedy today is dead! Why? It is all about sex as comedians have nothing to say for fear that their scripts will offend someone thus political correctness has killed natural human curiosity. I have the whole collection also of rising damp! I must admit it made me cringe but then I watched the whole box set twice now I loved it and hated it at the same time! It is a love and hate relationships I have with these old racist comedies lol You knew where you stood then not like now.

Alf Garnet you find even today but it is all hushed away. The jokes are below the belt but then if you are easily offended don't buy it! I like freedom and enjoy freedom of expression and opinion and would never dream of censoring entertainment no matter who it offends just don't watch it.

Why I love this dvd so much is the fact that everything was so in the open and so brutally honest! the gay social workers plays his part so well! He also appears in Othello I think ITV version such a wonderful actor! If you are easily offended don't buy! You have been warned! But if you love honesty and hate what society is today which is a superficial smile to your face; heirs and graces polite words then get this dvd you will laugh, cringe, be shocked, but it is honest and what people felt at the time
