There is something wonderfully familiar about "Sykes" as a comedy series - some sort of fondness between each of the actors and the writer that could not have been faked. All the quirks and irregularities of Sykes and Hattie Jacques when they're acting... It was as if they were all a large group of friends who were just making each other laugh.
At first, I thought this might have just been my own impression, or a fluke... but after viewing the clips "In the Studio" (an interesting set of outakes/behind the scene footage), I saw that this was indeed the case. And all the better for it.
A brilliantly funny series, with cameos from lots of Eric Sykes' closest friends... Peter Sellers (hilarious) and Joan Simms (excellent) to name just a few. The production team has obviously taken it's time in restoring the series, and this process is shown on the DVD... each disc has a different feature as well as the episodes.
A perfect DVD package to accompany a perfect British TV comedy series. I highly recommend you to buy immediately.
