The pilot episode for Rising Damp aired in 1974 and led to it running over four series and 28 episodes until 1978. Scripted by Eric Chappell the inspiration for the series came from a play Chappell wrote in 1970 called "The Banana Box" which featured a seedy character called "Rooksby". The play toured with the main character being played by Wilfred Bramble before Rossiter took over where it was eventually noticed by executives from Yorkshire TV who commissioned the pilot.
A massive ratings hit "Rising Damp" was aided considerably by the ensemble cast.Read more ›
To give this brilliant series anything less than five stars would be an insult. It is up there with the likes of 'Dad's Army', 'Steptoe and Son' and 'Hancock's Half Hour', it really is that good. An essential purchase and a comedy that is just as funny now as when it was first shown.
Not much can compare with this. Get it now while they're virtually giving it away...
If ever you are feeling a bit depressed or low just put on any of the Rising Damp DVD's and within minutes you'll be laughing like a fool.
Thanks Amazon for selling this top quality set at a brilliant low price.
It is constantly repeated recently on ITV 3 and even though I own the boxed set I still watch the episodes that come up.
There are no duff episodes and no duff actors in this series.
The much missed Richard Beckinsale as the naive student who never seems to find love in the physical sense. Don Warrington as the aristocratic black man who is the poshest person in the house and is lusted after by Miss Jones Frances de la Tour.
The scripts are near perfect as every line crackles with comedy. The writer never achieved such a pinnacle again even though he did Home to roost and Only When I Laugh.
It is a master class in how to write a sit com as he keeps all the action within a couple of rooms with a small cast.
Leonard Rossiter gives a fairly manic performance at times but was reputedly a perfectionist and was not always well liked by the rest of the cast.
There is racism but it is a form of reverse racism as the blakc man gets his own back on the racist by being posher and more successul in all respects to Rigsby.
They are all sad deluded characters and in the end even Miss Jones succumbs to Rigsby's charms
I own few comedy boxed sets and they cannot stand too much repetition but this one certainly can
Where are such good comedies these days. Series like rising damp got into the national conscience and people would take him off and laugh at the treatment of the lodgers.
They all liked each other really and needed each other although they yearned for greater things than living in rented rooms.
For years people would refer to accommodation which was down at heel and say Its just like rising damp. Rigsby became the epitome of the bad landlord.
A classic not to be missed

Classic comedy, only thing I didn't like was how the "movie" was just a rehash of the series same lines delivered in the same wayPublished 26 days ago by nonver
I have this exact version, and very funny it is too. All the episodes are there, and the late Rossiter and Beckensale are a joy to watch. Read morePublished 29 days ago by Greg Chapman
