5.0 out of 5 stars Another fine creation from Coogan, 13 May 2013
This review is from: Saxondale - Complete Series 1 & 2 Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
This is a very underrated comedy in my opinion, with genuine, intelligent laughs in every episode, and the odd poignant moment. Tommy Saxondale is an intelligent man, though socially awkward and quite arrogant. A former roadie with anger-management issues, he likes nothing more than to share his wisdom and show his disdain for 'the system' and any kind of authority, although he's 52 and living a middle class life of relative comfort. He's more likeable as a person than Partridge, I think because he knows he is ridiculous. Perhaps there is a bit of Tommy in all of us. Characters such as the neighbour and the office administrator are great regulars who bounce well off Tommy and remind us of such types we know in real life. Some really cringeworthy scenes had me laughing for ages, superbly acted by Coogan - a personal favourite is the court hearing in series 2, episode 5. Fans of Partridge will undoubtedly love this creation!
