One of the funniest and most brilliantly acted scenes in television comedy is the visit by Irene Handl and Pat Hayes to Alf's home. Irene Handl's 'Gwenneth' character is losing her marbles and she is convinced that Alf is a doctor. Later scenes with the two ladies in the pub are also brilliant. In Sickness and in Health is classic TV comedy at its best.
It is a shame that the DVD cannot be played an episode at a time without the captions. The viewer is forced to play the whole DVD and keep skipping until the desired episode is reached. I complained about this and Amazon kindly replaced the DVD but the replacement was as faulty as the original. Never mind, the DVD is wonderful entertainment! DVDs should be for viewing over and over again - this one certainly is.In Sickness And In Health - Series 3 [DVD] [1987
