Product Description

The classic 1960s and early 70s comedy series Till Death Us Do Part had established Warren Mitchell’s bigoted big-mouth Alf Garnett as one of the most unforgettable figures of British television. Too good a character to leave to posterity, his creator Johnny Speight brought him back – as opinionated, loud-mouthed, bad-tempered, reactionary, prudish, homophobic and hilarious as ever…

In Sickness and in Health is the 1985 sequel 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...

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait! 19 Jun 2008
Format:DVD
Finally after years of waiting the BBC have got round to releasing this classic comedy. And the good news is that there has been (as far as I can see) no editing done and it seems to be just as I remembered it. All of the (now) politically incorrect words and insults are in there. The best thing about this comedy is that it reminds me of the days when we laughed, not at, but with each other and without fear of offending someone. If you are a fan of Alf's or are wondering what this is all about then I encourage you to buy this because past fans and new fans alike can both get some great enjoyment from watching this DVD. I can't wait for the second series to come out later this year.

5.0 out of 5 stars BLOODY MARVELOUS INIT!!! 26 Oct 2008
Format:DVD
Bloody classic alf garnett,
I have the previous 72-74 series on dvd and was waiting foe these gems to come out and im so glad they did.
I just love alfs take on life although biggoted and bad tempered you cant help laughing at his reasoning.
I wont give you a run down on the episodes but just to say theses gems are well worth collecting before the P.C pundits try and ban them or they go discontinued.
I pre ordered the christmas specials back in september and cant wait for them to be finaly released.
Sad to see else finaly pass away but alf does not lose his opinions on life and the welfare state.
Winston is a brilliant addition to the family and upstages alf in most episodes mrs hollingberry starts off as alfs nemises and ends up being the new mrs.
Classic comedy..
Great service from amazonuk to a gratefull ex pat in the USA.
Nice one guys.

5.0 out of 5 stars About time too! 11 May 2008
Format:DVD
I was beginning to think that this gem had been scuppered by the dreaded, all-pervasive powers of Stalinist political correctness that blights our existence these days. It's wonderful to see it released after so long - let's just hope it's not emasculated by editing.
Alf should be allowed to stick his foot in his mouth as often as possible: if only our po-faced masters would understand that we're laughing at Alf and not with him (the vast majority of us, anyway). Looking forward to watching Alf's philosophical pub conversations with Arfur English again; the sexual tension with Mrs Hollingberry (!); Marigold; the Spike Milligan cameo as 'Fancy Fred' and the poor put-upon neighbour Ken Campbell. Classic British comedy as it used to be - and not a lousy Little Britain, Reeves'n'Mortimer or the ******* awful Russell Brand in sight. Bliss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 14 Aug 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The rantings of Alf and the acquiescence (mixed with contempt) of those around him make this one of the best comedy TV series produced. It is a continuation of 'Til Death Us Do Part - I think it tops that programme although it did not have the same contemporary impact in the 1980's as `Til Death did in the `60s.
I loved Series 1 and immediately ordered Series 2 when it became available, I do so hope they release Series 3 to 6 which only consist of seven episodes I think. What happened to the 1986(?) Christmas Special? It is a breath of fresh air.

5.0 out of 5 stars BBC pull their finger out!..... 20 Sep 2008
By A R Hartley VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
My god this has taken its time to come to DVD, the follow up series to Till Death us do part finds Alf older and still not any wiser...

Im only 26 myself but remember these fondly when i was young, realy because of Alfs rants. The series is slightly more light hearted than the original TDUDP, less political and more about Alfs aging adventures.

Im lucky enough to have the complete collection uncut and very un-PC. I realy hope this hasnt been chopped and messed with as BBC love to do with their dvds (Bottom and Only Fools come to mind).

If your a fan of the original series, this is a must!

I think the only sad part of this first series is Dandy Nichols looking so ill and passing toward the end of the series, a great shame.

Classic BBC tv before they got politically correct!

5.0 out of 5 stars The PC mob will not like this ! 3 Feb 2009
Format:DVD
It is lovely to see Dandy Nichols again with Warren Mitchell in this great Johnie Speight classic. Alf is just as mad as ever with his potty ranting & raving and seeing this sitcom being released on DVD is a great triumph for freedom of speech. This series has one in fits of laughter and my advice to any Guardian readers is that if they dislike this sitcom then don't watch it ! Mr Speight wrote an utter gem - the only problem was that the BBC thought that they where being very clever by depicting a bigot as stupid. The thing is a not inconsiderable number of people seemed to sympathize with what Alf was saying and that is why its ratings got so high. If you fancy a laugh and a joke on a trip down memory lane then buying Season One of In Sickness & In Health from Amazon at such a low price surely makes sense.

this is a very good classic comedy. Hard to believe that Alf Garnet couldn't get a word in edgeways.
I would recommend this.
