Everyone's favourite rag and bone men are back,
This review is from: Steptoe & Son - Series Five  [DVD] (DVD)
After a four year absence, Steptoe and Son returned for its fifth series, originally shot in colour but after the original copies were mislaid the series was broadcasted in black and white and to this day no colour copies have been found. Fortunately, this doesn't effect the quality of the series whatsoever as it is even stronger than it was before.
The series starts with the episode 'A Death in the Family' where Harold returns home with some back news for his father on the condition of their horse Hercules. In 'A Winter's Tale', Harold plans on a skiing holiday to Austria with out his father and then has to worry about a friendship with an antique dealer in 'Any Old Iron?'. Things get even worse for Harold in 'Steptoe and Son- And Son' when a woman turns turns up on the doorstep with some startling news and in 'The Colour Problem' he dreams of buying a new car while his father yearns for a new television set. His father then worries about doctors finding something wrong with his lungs in 'T.B Or Not T. B' and the duo face the risk of being booted out of their house after their freehold runs out in 'Men of Property'.
