Product Description

All 13 episodes of Steve Coogan's BBC comedy drama series. Tommy Saxondale (Coogan) has been through the rock and roll mill and lived to tell the tale. He plays fast and loose, shoots from the hip, and tells no lies - he's a true maverick. Tommy never took the corporate dollar. He doesn't work for 'the man'; he's his own man. These and other moth-eaten cliches are how Tommy would describe himself. But when Tommy removes his rose-tinted Aviator shades, he can't deny a few basic facts: he may have been a middle-ranking roadie for 20 years, but for the past ten years he has been at the cutting edge of... the Hertfordshire pest control industry. After a hostile divorce, Tommy has now found his soulmate in Magz (Ruth Jones), proprietress of an anarchic T-shirt shop.

Format: DVD
This is my first review written on a phone, so forgive the brevity. Steve Coogan's Saxondale is an underseen gem, and although not as definitively perfect as the Partridge shows, its often as funny and always every bit as realised and developed as his most famous creation.

This is mostly due to Coogan's performance- Saxondale is essentially one actor's showcase. There's good support from comedy dependables Morwenna Banks, Ruth Jones and Darren Boyd, but ultimately its Tommy's rage-fueled rants, social misgivings and egotistical boastings that make this such a rewarding watch. From the first episode he's fully developed, and his every motivation and facial twitch is instantly familiar. While he shares some of Partridge's idiosyncracies, Tommy's behaviour is mostly grounded in genuine intelligence: it's his attitudes to modern society that let him down.

The series dabbles with moments of embarassment humour, belly laughs and occassionally poignancy, and although its second series broadened a little, it remains one of best BBC comedies to slip by in years. With a decent set of fluff-free extras and at this price, you'd be missing out if you didn't bite.

This is a very underrated comedy in my opinion, with genuine, intelligent laughs in every episode, and the odd poignant moment. Tommy Saxondale is an intelligent man, though socially awkward and quite arrogant. A former roadie with anger-management issues, he likes nothing more than to share his wisdom and show his disdain for 'the system' and any kind of authority, although he's 52 and living a middle class life of relative comfort. He's more likeable as a person than Partridge, I think because he knows he is ridiculous. Perhaps there is a bit of Tommy in all of us. Characters such as the neighbour and the office administrator are great regulars who bounce well off Tommy and remind us of such types we know in real life. Some really cringeworthy scenes had me laughing for ages, superbly acted by Coogan - a personal favourite is the court hearing in series 2, episode 5. Fans of Partridge will undoubtedly love this creation!

I remember catching the odd episode of this series on TV and enjoyed it, the opportunity of getting both series 1 and 2 on boxset for under a tenner presented itself and I am so glad I never hesitated.
This is pure comedy gold all the way through both series and you are left wishing there was more to watch.....brilliant, laugh out loud comedy

Saxondale is like a breath of fresh air, it is a classic underrated comedy that deserves a lot more exposure. I think it is probably my best comedy programme at the moment.

Even better than Alan Partridge, cos Partridge had no redeeming features whatsoever. The Anger Management Sessions are brilliant! "Welcome to D**k Club!"

After Alan Partridge comes Saxondale that 70's loving old rocker with anger management problems. A bit more subtle than Alan Partridge but still top class writing and acting. The second series just as good as the first. Very funny.

I bought this as part of a promo on Amazon: 2 series for £15 or thereabouts. It was the Steve Coogan name that attracted me, but to be honest it's not as funny as Alan Partridge or any of his later work. I watched a couple of episodes and gave up. It was just too middle-aged blokey for me (I;m a younger middle-aged female!)
