Product Description

Product Description

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.

Format: DVD
I found watching this series on DVD much funnier than I did when it was first broadcast in BBC2 but I don't know why. Anyway, this series is the second outing for Steve Coogan's pest controller and former roadie, Tommy Saxondale and it doesn't disappoint. The characters from the first series, girlfriend Magz (Ruth Jones), employee Raymond (Rasmus Hardiker), Vicki (Morwenna Banks) and anger therapist (James Bachman) all return with the addition of Jonathan, the annoying neighbour, played by Darren Boyd. The best episode in this series tends to include a number of scenes with Vicki, such as the private school one, where Tommy is glued to a chair and has to exit the grounds in his underpants; Vicki is a hilarious creation and steals every scene she's in. The courtroom episode is also particularly well crafted and it was good to spot Christopher Ryan from The Young Ones playing the ticket inspector.

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.

Brilliant comedy series. As good as, if not better than the first. Each episode is a delight and has more laugh out loud moments than most other comedies, including whole feature films devoting millions of dollars to the endeavour of making people laugh. This has infinitely more scenes of real humour, that is touching and real. Saxondale is unlike Partridge a likeable character, who we can identify more with, as he is while not being exactly normal, is cooler than most, but tries to hard to maintain his cool status, and with results that just make him appear desperate or too cool for humanity.
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.

The dvd of the second series of Steve Coogan's fantastic sitcom Saxondale is eagerly anticipated in Sept 08.
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!

The second series of Saxondale is even better than the first. Episode 1 is realy a summation of the 1st series character of Tommy Saxondale from there on his vista expands and takes in more characters in a broader scope of situations and the comedy is all the better for it.

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'.

Tommy Saxondale is back for a second series , imparting his wisdom to anyone who will listen. He's still being belittled by his nemesis, the awful receptionist Barbara.He still has his longstanding/long suffering girlfriend Magz for support, along with young sidekick Raymond. This series sees Tommy take on a new adversary, his right-wing neighbour who always pretends to be 'down with the kids' but never quite pulls it off. Tommy can see through his arguments every time and usually ends of making a mockery of his words. Enjoy!

A definite case of 'that difficult second series' here. There's a different director, a grainier look, and Coogan even plays the character slightly differently - as if his druggie past has caught up. It's more formulaic, with a number of ideas re-used from series1. The 'residents committee' character, for one, doesn't add much, besides being a bit out of place in a 21st century cul-de-sac. After all, everyone's a Saxondale nowadays - Margot Leadbetters are thin on the ground.

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?
