5.0 out of 5 stars As good as ever 12 April 2007
By M. J. Collins VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Tom and Diana return for the third series. Nothing much has changed, Diana is still as politically incorrect as ever and continues to wage war on the Bayview manager - The Idiot Bains and on anyone else who gets in her way. Tom, Diana's trusted sidekick is happy to join in.

This series introduces the Vicar Denis Sparrow

5.0 out of 5 stars A very enjoyable bit of nostalgia 4 Jun 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We, like many others no doubt, watched 'Waiting For God' as a television series many years ago. This time round it was no less enjoyable, which is not always the case when returning to something one really enjoyed time back. Staphanie Cole as Diana and Graham Cowden as Tom are absolutely superb as are the other characters in this most enjoyable series. How I envy them the life and humour they still have at quite a mature age. How wonderful if we could all feel and be like this!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Oldest Are The Best. 21 April 2014
By Ern
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This sit com is brilliantly casted.

Harvey the spiv of the series. Jane well she really get crushed in every episode.

Tom and Diana - Cheese and chalk but they gel. His boring son Geoffrey who's passion is shelf building, little wonder with a wife Marion Ballard, a pill popping drunk who is also a bit of a tart. Which brings me to the male equivalent -basil the 80 year old stallion.

Stephanie Cole and Graham Crowden (Tom & Diana) really are the stars, and it shows. Top notch comedy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Series three 21 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Well, it was worth waiting for and still had me laughing my head off, just like the previous two series. If you love British humour at it's best, do buy all five series. I have, and am about to start watching Series four.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacularly funny: real old school comedy. 1 Mar 2014
By DS9
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Waiting for God was one of the finest shows of the sitcom genre. Wickedly funny on so many levels, the humour relies on the superbly drawn character profiles, combined with excellent realisation by the cast.

If you're new to it, the 'plot' as such centres about a highly intelligent and previously outstandingly successful international photo-journalist, Diana Trent, who finds herself in a retirement home, and her neighbour, an ex-accountant, Tom Ballard, whose son and daughter-in-law now want him out of their house. To compensate for his previously rather staid existence, he invents a form of lunacy, in which he appears to believe he's exploring the Amazon, climbing Everest or going to the moon.

This apparently bizarre setting is rescued from ignominy by superb scripting, excellent acting but, above all, by the tactic of making only one character completely normal, around whom insanity whirls. On paper, this doesn't look much, but on screen it comes alive and it's easy to see why it was Bafta nominated and still shown around the world.

To complete the scene are the home manager, Harvey Baines, the personification of sliminess, and his hapless assistant, Jane, who experiences continual on-going unrequited love for her boss. It is the battles between Baines and Diana which create the tension and humour throughout, and this is aided by appearances from Tom's son and his daughter-in-law, Marion, arguably one of the greatest comedy creations in the show.

This is intelligent humour and outstandingly funny, providing wonderful comic moments as well as the occasional touching interlude, such as when Diana's niece, Sarah, played by Lucy Ashton, the one-time spouse of Martin Clunes, becomes pregnant.
