Product Description

Starring Dawn French and Catherine Tate. With Bill Bailey, David Bradley, Anne-Marie Duff, Sean Foley, Liza Goddard, Richard Mylan and Stewart Wright.

Mary Tregwednack lives above her Post Office in the fictitious Cornish village of St Gweep with her neurotic partner, Angela. Lesbians until something better comes up, they enjoy the cosy security of life in a tight-knit coastal community, but their chances of finding suitable men are more remote than the village itself. For behind this picture postcard exterior, witchcraft and wife-swapping are more a way of life than cream teas and Cornish pasties. Here, the village bobby is Police Calendar’s Mr March, the cosy pub hosts swingers’ evenings and the local museum is dedicated to witchcraft …

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best BBC comedies ever. 5 Mar 2006
By Blue hunter VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
A very funny comedy with a top class cast.
This was originally on the BBC and it went unnoticed by me when it was first shown on the t.v,however having heard
alot about it i rented it from Amazon and wasn't disappointed,it was hilarious.
It's not your usual comedy where you can see the joke coming or the obvious funny gag and then you laugh sort of thing, this is more of a dark comedy,as you might call it.To me it's more the characters who are funniest rather than the storylines.
All credit in my opinion to the cast including Dawn French,Catherine Tate,David Bradley,Anne-Marie Duff and many more.Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Surely not bad enough for only 1 star! 19 Mar 2004
Format:DVD
Ok, this series isn't great, but it's not that bad either. There are some funny moments, but no episode is filled with many of them I must admit!
It strange that considering the talent involved this didn't turn out better, but you never know, the next series might be better, I'll still be brave & watch it anyway!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Brit Comedy in Years! 31 Mar 2004
Format:DVD
I bought Wild West on DVD having never seen it, just because I wanted something to watch. And I've always loved Dawn French (French and saunders, Vicar of Dibley etc) so I felt it was an ideal choice. It is so far removed from any of her other comedy but don't let that put you off. This is one of the best programmes I've seen in a long time.
The humour is fairly subtle so you need half a brain to understand some of the speech and sight gags. Set in a Cornish village it is based around an ensemble of characters - Mary (Dawn French) and Angela (Catherine Tate) are the linch pins of the community, serving behind the counter of the post office - where they also live in the flat above and share a bad as a lezbian couple until something better (i.e. a bloke) comes along. Then there's Old Jake, a lonely fisherman, Harry, the local "lad" and Holly (played by the very talented Anne-Marie Duff) who runs a witchcraft museum/shop.
The first episode is a bit dodgy, but every sitcom has that problem of setting up the characters - but in the subsequent episodes many strange and hilarious things occur such as Old Jake going missing, Mary and Angela holding a protest against holiday homes by breaking into an actresses home and using her widescreen tv and helping themselves to the liquor cabinet, the discovery that the local pub holds social evenings (swinging parties) upstairs to which Mary invites herself, arriving at the event with the line "I'm here for my poking".
I urge you to give this comedy a try. It's different - but it's certainly not to be missed! 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE FUNNIEST SHOW EVER 22 July 2004
Format:DVD
This has to be the funniest show i have ever seen in my life - I nearly died of laughter while watching it! I must have repeatedly watched it about 300 times afterwards!
Dawn French (who plays Mary Tregwednack) is fantastic and hilrious in this as are the other characters.
The series is packed with hilarious scenes such as mary counting to 10 in cornish,comparisons to 'french lorry - driverness',mary refusing euros and pouring candle wax on herself!!!
The funniest episode has to be 'Fear Of Bunjee' - Fantastic!
If there is one comedy you ever watch, it has got to be this one.
