All six episodes from the second series of Steve Coogan's BBC sitcom. Tommy Saxondale (Coogan) has been through the rock and roll mill and lived to tell the tale. He plays fast and loose, shoots from the hip, and tells no lies - he's a true maverick. Tommy never took the corporate dollar. He doesn't work for 'the man'; he's his own man. These and other moth-eaten cliches are how Tommy would describe himself. But when Tommy removes his rose-tinted Aviator shades, he can't deny a few basic facts: he may have been a middle-ranking roadie for 20 years, but for the past ten years he has been at the cutting edge of... the Hertfordshire pest control industry. In this series, after saving Martin (Kevin Eldon) from a suicide attempt, Tommy decides he's the right man to bring the stranger back to life. But Tommy's lack of professional knowledge about counselling leads to another near-death experience at the local karaoke club.

In some ways it was a shame that the BBC decided to curtail this show after two series but it does mean that the quality was never compromised. The extras which feature on this disc include an interview with Coogan and co-writer Neil Maclennan and are worth watching. Saxondale was a fantastic series which really underlines the unique comic talent of Steve Coogan.
10/10 comedy at its best. I would rank this series among the greats of british comedy. This is pure gold in terms of comedy.
If you enjoy good comedy, then this is a must. Why this has not been on as much as Father Ted, and Dad's Army, and Red Dwarf is anybody's guess. Although Father Ted and Red Dwarf are great, and continued for more series, this is based more on real life character or person.
Both these series are just perfect, and cannot be bettered. So a third series, would perhaps not be as good now. Father Ted peaked in the third series, and Red Dwarf, has continued for much longer, but there they have a much larger array of characters alien, robot, human, and the canvas is far larger, with storylines taking science fiction to absurd levels. So it is unfair to compare this real life based comedy to that of Red Dwarf.
This is in my top ten comedies from tv.
For my money, it's the most rewarding character Coogan has ever embodied; yes Partridge was brilliant, but this is a different kettle of sitcom character, a more realistic and believable role with genuine warmth, if you want easy laughs stick with Norfolk's finest, if you want more subtle humour this is the place to be and the second series is even better than the first.
A must have for all comedy fans and wrangler pro rodeo green flash pump wearing prog rock fans!
It looks like the BBC will not take a 3rd series and so MacClennan and Coogan's scripts have everything thrown into them.
Commision editors at the BBC seem to have lost their marbles; while some idiot in the drama department writes a cheque for the diabolical Bonekickers another puts the book away in the comedy department.
Saxondale, it seems will go the way of Hyperdrive - loveable and funny characters consigned to the dustbin marked 'Comedy Gold'.
It's still fun, especially the poisonous Vicky (Mummy Pig was never like this); but you feel there wasn't actually much more to say about this character. They probably stopped at the right time.
Somebody help me out - what TV show originally used that theme music?
