1.0 out of 5 stars Fine series but don't buy this, 22 Aug 2011
This review is from: Up Pompeii : The Complete BBC Collection (DVD)
The Frankie Howerd Collection [DVD] Contains the complete Up Pompeii series plus Further Up Pompeii, Then Churchill Said to Me and The Best of Frankie Howerd. Much cheaper than this and much better value.

You're wrong - this is the purchase to make for the BBC series

Try looking at the link I referred to!

That set is the TV series too (in fact it contains exactly the same 3 DVD boxed set of "Up Pompeii : The Complete BBC Collection" within the cardboard slip case). The difference is the set I linked to gives you two more DVDs too and the whole set is £20 less!

"Up Pompeii : The Complete BBC Collection" is a waste of money but if you want to spend more and get less that is fine.

As far as I can see this set has been discontinued and replaced by the BBC with "The Frankie Howerd Collection" - which is why if you look carefully you can see Amazon no longer sell this set. It is being sold by marketplace sellers who want to make a quick buck from people who don't check out the current BBC product listings!
