A rare find,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Up Pompeii : The Complete BBC Collection (DVD)
As a collector of old Sitcoms,this to me was a favourite at the time ..admittedly its a dated series which might not appeal today..The rauchy comedy was new and OTT at the time( alomg with Casanova,Emanuelle,etc) but totally tame by todays standards ,Recently acquired a copy of Whoops Bagdad a spin off series from this ..Fawlty towers and Black adder had it right ..Best just make a few great series and have em begging for more than making too many espisodes.. A rare find so get this series if you find it..Theres not many about

The old school learned in a hard school, comedians, actors, and comedy actors alike - can you imagine any of the new breed having to face working club or theatre audiences who didn't hestitate to heckle rubbish?
