This book is an essential read, going behind the scenes of LotSW over nearly 30 years, telling the highs and lows of a long running series loved by its fans yet maligned by unimaginative critics and apathetic bosses.
It holds no punches, and is a perfect companion to the Andrew Vine book released the other year, with lots more detail about its unceremonious axing.
The only real downside to the book is it could have done with another proof reading, as there are plenty of basic errors. Many open brackets never close, sometimes a title followed by a year (for example Jaws (1988)) is given twice in the same paragraph, and sometimes two nigh on identical sentences follow each other, plus episodes are sometimes given the wrong year.
On the whole, a recommended read for anyone interested in TV directing, especially comedy.
