Only When I Laugh,
This review is from: Only When I Laugh - The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
Only When I Laugh is about three men in a hospital ward, none of them seems to be ill enough to stay in bed when anything happens. Figgis is the outspoken working man, a lorry driver, who is behand almost all the trouble the three patients cause the long-suffering Doctor Thorpe. There is no swearing or gore, just genuine wit and comic situations in every episode, of which there are 29. The series was written by Eric Chappell, an outstanding writer of sitcoms including "Duty Free". The series was very poupular when shown on TV in the eighties and doesn't seem to have dated at all. Lots of fun and laughs make this set exceptional value.
