5.0 out of 5 stars Just as I remembered 6 Dec 2011
By B. Kunz
Format:DVD
Having seen this series when it first appeared I have been making do with reading the book ever since. I finally took the plunge and purchased the DVD set and was delighted to say that it was as good as I remembered. For me one of the overiding joys is the fact that the humour is very gentle and not unkind (as with so much of the modern stuff). I would thoroughly recommend this to anybody.

A very good story with fine acting from all concerned particularly Bates and Cusack. I'd forgotten how good it was

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent ! 28 May 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
SO much clearer and more colourful than my old personal video copy !
The wording on the box and cases is in Dutch but that doesn't worry me; I just have to remember to turn off the subtitles before starting to play the dvds and I'm off on my Travels with Oliver :O)

I'd read the book several times and decided I'd like to see the TV adaptation. Bought the DVD and, in high anticipation, began watching.
I haven't finished watching it, nor will I.
The performance is ruined beyond rescue by Bates' OTT hamming - hamming so awful it'd be out of place in a kiddies' Christmas pantomime. His ego obviously leads him to believe he is the only focus of every scene, and his over-acting is worthy of a Victorian melodrama.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alan Plater Gem 8 Jan 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have always been a fan of Alan Plater and his quirky sense of humour. If you enjoy word play and a different take on life and its meaning this will amuse and delight you. Anagrams, crosswords and redundant comparative religion lecturers and jazz freaks abound.Great fun and adventures on the way to the Orkneys and the legendary crossword compiler Aristotle.
