As someone who has played regular Sunday village cricket in the Home Counties for more years than I care to remember, Outside Edge is an absolute delight! I swear I KNOW characters spookily close to Alex and Kevin, not to mention several Rogers. This beautifully observed comedy is fairly gentle in pace, echoing the traditional version of our glorious Summer game. Obviously it pays to be fully au fait with the quirks of cricket - many of the funniest moments are on the field of play (well to this cricket nut anyway), but the off-field interaction between writer Richard Harris' splendid characters is equally rewarding and surprisingly profound in places. There is huge poignancy generated between the voluptuous Maggie (Josie Lawrence) and poor long-suffering Mim (Brenda Blethyn), as the latter contemplates how cold and sterile her marriage is to the ghastly Roger. I'm sure there will be many nods of sympathy from 'cricket widows' around the country at some of the ladies' conversations! The scene around 4 episodes in, where Roger finds Kevin wearing a dress is a genuine laugh-out-loud comedy tour de force which in my opinion ranks amongst the best Brit sit-com moments ever. Oh and it has to be said that Josie Lawrence has never looked sexier! Some 10 hours of TV bliss and an essential purchase for every cricketer!

A brilliant show. All three series plus the corfu christmas special plus the original play featuring Prunella Scales and the late great Paul Eddington. An absolute bargain. Buy it . You wont regret it.

I remember seeing this on tv years ago and have always remembered it. The casting is superb, and the storyline hilarious,its cricket as you've never seen it before. From Rog, the overbearing captain, to sex mad Maggie and Kev it is an absolute joy to watch. A definite MUST TO SEE.

After seeing and enjoying series 1 of "Outside Edge", I struck out and bought this complete 3 series and pilot. Usually subsequent series of successful comedies are thrashed to the point of ridicule, stupidity and boredom. However, this was not the case for Outside Edge. It is intelligent comedy whose appeal lies in the actors and characters portrayed. I can't single out any one actor over the others. The blend is perfect and the relationship between the Timothy Spall and Josie Lawrence characters is hilarious. Equally, the Brenda Blethyn and Robert Daws characters are perfectly matched. I loaned my "complete series" to my sister who managed to lose it........! After two years of withdrawal, I have splashed out on this replacement. Still as fresh as the first time I saw it. I thoroughly recommend this to anybody whether they be a cricket fan or not. You'll keep coming back to it.

This low key but brilliant skit on various middle class characters who are all so 'ordinary' but at the same time interesting. I really liked this and came from viewing it feeling good. It is a classy comedy drama without the normal off-putting music or lowest common denominator content. Lots of interest and character. Excellent and very good value.

I am no fan of cricket, but I loved this show when it aired many years ago. The DVD is well packaged and plays well considering how old the series is. Take no notice of people that say the quality looks like it came from a video.....it is an old show, it is not digital but well worth owning.
And the service was excellent also.

The first 3 episodes are a little slow but then this comedy takes off and it's just hilarious. It is a marvellous picture of local amateur cricket, team players and their families, very true to life with just the right amount of send-up and exaggeration.

The cast is wonderful, the scripts marvellous and series 2 and 3 are superb after the background scene setting and getting to know the characters in series 1.

It maybe helps to be a local cricket fan but it's not essential. Outside Edge is very much a snapshot of Britain at its brightest and best: a land where the sun doesn't always shine but a captain never loses hope that rain will not stop play!

Okay, fair enough? Super!
