Third series of the comedy show set in a bizarre parallel universe where the rich and famous all live together on a small, suburban street in middle England. Starring Phil Cornwell and John Sessions, the show places Hollywood bigwigs next to rock and roll legends, and demonstates the perils and problems which the glitterati face on an everyday basis.

In this series Mick Jagger and Keith Richards go on tour leaving David Bowie in charge of their corner shop whilst Michael Cain takes the others on a trip to the sea-side for Mrs Hugget (their cleaner) to relive her glory days. ("I know you're all frazzled what with the long journey and the harpoon murder.")
Highlights include seeing Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson, Joe Pesci and Al Pacino watching Eastenders...
Pacino: I've been trying to get Coppola to buy the rights for Eastenders for years.
The impersonations of big Hollywood stars (and a few UK ones) will slay you. They're living out of each other's pockets; being petty, down to earth, gossipy in middle class suburb "Surbiton".
It will brutally crack you up. The small cast impressively bring us "Al"(Pacino), "Joe"(Pesci), "David"(Bowie), "Roger"(Moore), "Jack"(Nicolson), "Anthony" (Hopkins), "Michael"(Caine), & "Sir Alec"(Guinness) while (Rolling Stones) "Mick & Keith" run the local shop.(The scatty, incomprehensible "Bowie" takes over the shop temporarily while "Mick & Keith" are away on tour).
This DVD has everything: the complete 3rd series, it's not just a "best of"!
Pure genius: it's all the sketches related to the plot line of ailing neighborhood cleaner Mrs Huggett going on (probably her last) holiday with most of the cast; and there finding her long lost AWOL Husband. (This features a classic impersonation of "Sting" jamming with "Van Morrison" in the pub/hotel that the Stella Street crowd stay in.)
For extras there's "The Man who Drove Sheep to Bruges" (condensed version of this, the 3rd series).
Like Series 1 & 2, Series 3 is far superior and funnier than the disappointing "Stella Street"(The Movie)...which had it moments, but seems to have been made for a less demanding audience.
