Top critical review
Dated but still moderate fun.

Hurrah! The sitcom on DVD at last with a bunch of extras along with the rather misfiring film version (which does, however, contain one of my favourite lines ever: "We didn't win at Dunkirk by running away"). It's strange to think that a significant slice of the population will have no idea what the politics of this series even means -- Soviet Union? Shah of Iran? Cold War? To younger viewers it would have that odd "what am I missing?" feel that Watergate-based humour had to me in the 1990s.
It's a good-to-have rather than a must-have and it loses a point for the film version.
