Product Description

Product Description

Featuring light entertainment legend Bruce Forsyth in his only sitcom role, Slinger's Day charts the trials and tribulations of the beleaguered manager of a London supermarket. This hilarious Thames series boasts scripts by veteran comedy writers Brian Cooke and Vince Powell, Sorry creators Ian Davidson and Peter Vincent, and novelist Alex Shearer. This set contains both series.

Environmental protesters, a shoplifting epidemic, a burgeoning butter mountain and largely incompetent staff are just a few of the problems facing Cecil Slinger, the new manager of Supafare. And just how is he supposed to offload 560 packets of Jacobson's Savoury Fishcakes when no-one wants to buy them? Slinger has to concede that the public doesn't respond to lying, cheating and deception any more. Whatever happened to the old values?

Very Funny Series with Legend Sir Bruce Forsyth The episodes are so badly made that it's just fun to watch for a great laugh not to mention the theme tune overall great series. Just like Fawlty Towers It only had a few episodes 12 in the entire series.

A long time coming and is at last to be released on DVD.

I remember this as light hearted but very funny series and Bruce Forsythe highly entertaining as the mad-cap supermarket manager whose staff are always being chased around by Slinger keeping them in line.

Good to see more of these slightly obscure sitcoms from the golden era of T.V finding a rightful place on DVD.

Good on Network!

I don't remember this when it was on the T.V so it was all new to me. And it was a pleasant surprise. Bruce Forsyth was a very underrated comedy actor. Given the right series he would have become one of the greats. In this series he comes across as very competent esp: in the scenes with the Irish actor. A loverly little comedy. Glad I bought it.

This series does not "follow on" from Tripper's Day, it stands as a series in its own right and it's hilarious.

Cecil Slinger (Bruce Forsyth) arrives as the new manager of the Supafare supermarket and proceeds to try and tame the staff and actually sell some goods. However, anything and everything that can go wrong does go wrong providing lots of very funny situations and plenty of opportunity for good old fashioned slapstick comedy.

Bruce Forsyth is in his element here and the supporting cast are just great. If you're a fan of these 80's shows then you will love this, even more so if you like slapstick routines and silly situations a la Charlie Chaplin.

Two series are just right!

By Mikey TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 18 Dec. 2012
Format: DVD
Slinger's Day is a comedy consisting of twelve episodes produced by Thames Television for ITV from 1985. The series is suitable for all members of the family and proves what a talent Bruce Forsyth has in this, his only sitcom role.
Leonard Rossiter previously appeared in the preceding Thames series Tripper's Day and sadly the series had to be cancelled due to his passing.
With a good supporting cast, Slinger's Day is worth a watch. Look out for Andrew Paul, a young actor who four years later would start a role lasting over a decade as PC Dave Quinnan in the Thames police series The Bill. Paul's debut with the Bill will feature on the next boxset of that series.
Sit back and enjoy the fun.

At last an opportunity to buy the only sit com Bruce starred in - true he isn't a born actor but this style of sitcom suits him , you don't need to believe in him - you just need to enjoy the comedy.

Its bizarre, cos I never watched this because of Slinger, although it was great to see Brucie to something other than host, and he is a great actor. Getting this series is worth its money just for that alone. Buy it!!!
