5.0 out of 5 stars Bumper edition of M&W at their best!, 12 May 2010
This review is from: Morecambe & Wise - Series 7 [DVD] (DVD)
Twelve forty-five minute shows from 1972-3 and it is Eric and Ernie at their absolute career best. The series represents by far their best work at the BBC, brilliantly scripted by Eddie Braben with Barry Cryer and others. The production values are noticeably higher than on previous series, with splendid costumes and sets and a stellar guest list including Cliff Richard, Robert Morely, Peter Cushing, Susan Hampshire and the top-notch supporting regulars.

Most of the shows are as good as the best Christmas shows, with Ernest Maxin's lavish musical numbers giving an added touch of class. Standouts include the Cliff Richard 'Fleet's in' and Peter Cushing joining in the song and dance on 'A Couple of Swells'.

The sketches are superb as well with very few duds among the classics. Lots of living room and bed dialogues, which I think are some of the best things they ever did, plus beautifully performed masterpieces like the Chip Connoisseurs and the astonishing Men Who Speak in Unison routine.

Incredible value for money, this volume deserves to be in every comedy student's collection along with Laurel and Hardy, W.C. Fields, Hancock and the Marx Brothers
