Product Description

These phenomenally successful stage shows established Steve Coogan as one of the best live comedy performers around. They feature all the favorite Coogan characters, including Alan Partridge and Paul and Pauline Calf, with fresh, laugh-out-loud material. Whether you’re a Coogan lover or a fan of live comedy, this is a DVD to be watched over and over again.

The Man Who Thinks He’s It
In this performance, Coogan brings a hilarious set of characters to the stage, including Paul and Pauline Calf, Duncan Thickett, Eurovision-winning Portuguese singing sensation Tony Ferrino and an extended set from the inimitable Alan Partridge, as well as surprising backstage Coogan and appearances from Simon Pegg and Julia Davis.

Live ‘n’ Lewd
Politically correct comedian Bernard Righton (John Thomson) introduces notorious student-basher and lager lout Paul Calf; his celeb-bedding, sophisticated sister, Pauline; Duncan Thickett, the worst comedian in the world and legendary Chief Assistant to the Fire, Health and Safety Executive for the North West region, Ernest Moss.

Steve Coogan as Alan Partridge and Other Less Successful Characters
Paul and Pauline Calf, Tommy Saxondale, Duncan Thickett and, of course, Norwich’s favorite son, Alan Gordon Partridge are all featured in this hilarious live performance.

Paul and Pauline Calf’s Cheese and Ham Sandwich
Novice (and failing) stand-up Duncan Thickett welcomes back the chain-smoking Paul Calf and his ‘dead sophisticated’ sister for a live performance. Pauline’s had her hair done, her belly pierced and a mis-spelt Chinese tattoo; while Paul has a new girlfriend and has souped-up his mother’s disability buggy. There are also some surprises; Paul treats us to a love song while Pauline performs an excerpt from her one-woman show, “Floss – the story of Florence Nightingale”.

Special Features:
  • Australian live show excerpts
  • Steve Coogan: the inside story
  • Animations of Paul and Pauline Calf

Product Description

Janet Scott and Rachel Bailey are Detective Constables in Manchester Met Police's Major Incident Team, Syndicate 9 murder unit. Part of a team working for the formidable DCI Gill Murray, their intuition, research and interview skills are integral to putting brutal killers behind bars. Despite their differences - the impulsive, funny and single Rachel contrasting with her elder colleague, a reflective, married mother-of-two - the two detectives are a great partnership. Thrown together in the toughest of cases, they have become the best of friends, ready to support each other both in and away from the incident room. As they take on testing and horrific murder cases - including the killing of pregnant girl made to look like suicide, a mother left to bleed to death in the boot of her car and a young boy shot dead in his living room - Rachel finds her just-finished relationship far from over, while Janet struggles to curb a workplace affair. With careers on the line, there are some heart-rending decisions to be made... Contains 6 episodes Extras include: Behind The Scenes (9 mins approx)

Having ordered and now received this box set, I assume it has been taken off general release for the moment due to the content of the DVD's not always being that described on the front of each disk. However, everything that should be within the box set, is (somewhere). For those that can't be bothered to return the box set to Amazon and await the replacement, the disk order should read as follows, with a brief review of each;

1. Knowing Me, Knowing You
The series that really raised Coogan's profile into national prominence. Received complaints at the time of original broadcast as some viewers failed to recognise it was a spoof. Very funny and painfully close to reality in terms of Partridge's TV personality character traits.

2. Knowing Me, Knowing Yule
Christmas follow on from the original series. More of the same, but that's no bad thing. "Do you want some, I'm handy?!"

3. I'm Alan Partridge Series 1. 4. Series extras
Arguably Coogans finest hour(s). Solitary stays in travel taverns have never quite been the same since. The Partridge character is fleshed out, with all his flaws coming to the fore. Still, there's been worse television programmes commissioned than "Monkey Tennis".

5. I'm Alan Partride Series 2. 6. Series extras
The creators were alledgedly in retrospect not too pleased with this series, maybe due to some of the scenarios and acting becoming a little over the top. Alan has swapped his travel tavern for a caravan next to his new house. I personally loved it.

7. Paul Calf's video diaries
Contains the original video diary, and the follow on. I brought the box set mainly for this, as I don't think the BBC ever sold them as a seperate DVD release. Very good. RIP Fat Bob.

If you are a fan of Steve Coogan and own little of his work on DVD then this is a great purchase at a great price. If you - like me - own the majority of his work already and are buying it for the previously unavailable Paul Calf's Video Diary and Tony Ferrino content they you may ask whether it's worth it.

The answer is - probably no. The Paul Calf stuff is very funny but a bit dated. Tony Ferrino is Coogan's weakest comedy creation and whilst somewhat amusing this will probably be the least watched DVD of the set.

If you already have the majority of his stuff then I probably wouldn't bother purchasing this for Calf and Ferrino. However if your Partridge DVD's are worn out due to their weekly watching and you are able to sell the DVD's you already have to a friend like myself I'd go for it.

The pick of the bunch is obviously our favourite Norwich based broadcaster followed by both series of 'Saxondale' who is a fantastic creation. 'Coogan's Run' varies in quality but is well worth watching.
'Doctor Terrible' again varies in quality but has great range of actors and some very funny moments. The Victorian pulp pastiche with Mark Gatiss is the most enjoyable. The live show 'Paul and Pauline Calf's Cheese and Ham Sandwich' is relatively short but the extras more than make up for it.

All the DVD's are the same as their original releases so you won't miss any content or extras and unlike the original pressing of this set they all have the correct names on the disc.

As I've said - this is a great set of work by Britain's best comic actor but it may not be worth the cash depending on your current collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Comedy from Coogan 11 July 2009
The 'Complete Coogan' boxset is, put simply, essential viewing for fans of Steve Coogan's various comedy characters such as Alan Partridge, Paul and Pauline Calf, Tommy Saxondale and so on. Collecting previously released material with two exclusive discs, containing the hitherto unreleased 'Paul & Pauline Calf's Video Diaries / Three Fights, Two Weddings and a Funeral' and 'The Tony Ferrino Phenomenon', it's an impressive package.

'Knowing Me, Knowing You' and 'I'm Alan Partridge' are probably his best known work - particularly the latter, which has established itself as a modern comedy classic. But there's plenty of worthwhile material elsewhere in the set - Coogan's most recent BBC series, 'Saxondale' about an ex-roadie turned pest control operative, which although not a smash in the same way that Partridge was, still has some great moments. Then there are the anthology series 'Dr Terrible's House of Horrible', which spoofs old school British horror and shows, and 'Coogan's Run', a showcase for a variety of Coogan characters. Both have their ups and downs, but are well worth the effort - and fans of old Hammer / Amicus films will appreciate 'Dr Terrible' in particular, which is loaded with in-jokes and references which will go right over the heads of most viewers.

It's great to see 'Paul and Pauline Calf's Video Diaries' on DVD, as this was one of Coogan's earliest starring vehicles, and the Calfs remain a much-loved part of his live repertoire to this day. Slightly rougher around the edges than later, more lavish series, this is a neglected gem.
