5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Steptoe Series?
And so at last we come to the first series of 'Steptoe and Son' to be released entirely in colour, although of course it was actually the third series to be originally filmed in colour. We now know why the two earlier colour series were released in such poor quality black and white versions, and I suppose we should be grateful to have them at all, but it still reflects...

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Quite As Good As Previous Seasons, But Still Better Than Most Comedies, 19 Feb. 2007

This review is from: Steptoe & Son - Series Seven [1972] [DVD] (DVD)
Well this is the first Steptoe and Son DVD to be released entirely in colour, so this will spare me having to defend the quality of the B/W episodes of previous releases and get on with reviewing this disc.

Season 7 is perhaps the weakest year in the history of Steptoe and Son dealing as it does with seven different storylines with varying degrees of success, ranging from good to very good to excellent. It's a fact, however that Steptoe's poorer episodes are still vastly superior to most comedies better episodes.

The episodes themselves begin with MEN OF LETTERS which is a story concerning a vicar asking one of the two to write an article about the history of totting for a magazine, this is perhaps the poorest episode of the collection. A STAR IS BORN highlights Harold's attempts to join an amateur dramatics group and guess who's the better at acting?

OH WHAT A BEAUTIFUL MOURNING is the tale of Albert's brother dying and the susequent funeral and like Men of Letters is a little standard. LIVE NOW P.A.Y.E LATER is the great episode of Albert claiming benefits for his deceased wife all the years that she's been dead and then having to dress up as her to fool the benefits department. LOATHE STORY sees Harold attempt to kill his dad in his sleep and goes to see a psychiatrist and once again is nothing really special.

The final two episodes are brilliant, DIVIDED WE STAND is one of Steptoe's all time greats and deals with Harold putting up a partition in the house to seperate him from his dad. And finally THE DESPERATE HOURS sees the dreadfully broke twosome entertain a couple of escaped convicts, one of which is superbly played by Leonard Rossiter.

The Christmas special 1973 is usually considered part of season 7 but it appears that it isn't on the disc, which suggests that it will probably be released on it's own disc with the Christmas special 1974, ala Porridge.

So there it is, not quite as consistantly good as previous seasons, but the brilliant final two episodes alone more than make this disc worth buying. Lets have the eighth and final season and the two Christmas specials. Enjoy.
