5.0 out of 5 stars Network Rule!!, 14 April 2006
This review is from: George And The Dragon [DVD] (DVD)
George and the Dragon was originally released about 17 years before I was born, but when I saw the pre-release information for it I couldn't believe it! Network DVD are in a period of mass old-sitcom release that (although frequent) is of the highest Quality.

There are no special features with this set, but it is a wonderful item on four discs, each disc containing one season of the show. Sid James and Peggy Mount are fantastically cast as the warring chauffeur and housekeeper of Colonel Maynard (played by the ever-brilliant John Le-Mesurier) and have great chemistry. It is clear that this show was written for Sid but Peggy really pushes him to be the headline here.

Great story-lines across all four series make it easy to see why the show was (and is) so popular, but one of the best things about this DVD is that Network have not removed the ad-caps, so it is like watching it back in the good old days... The only slight disappointment here is the quality of the material that was transfered (it was clearly slightly worn) but this does provide the Nostalgia element and is in no way worthy of a lost star.

Buy this, it is brilliant, and while you're at it treat yourself to some other great Network DVDs such as On The Buses series 1,2,3,4 and Bless This House series 1,2,3.

I used to see Peggy Mount frequently during the 1970's. She lived in Elmsleigh Drive in Leigh on Sea - Essex and her bungalow was at the end of my nans road Flemming Crescent. We would often see her in her front garden pruning her roses. They should put a plaque up on the house.
