Format: DVD
This DVD release contains the 1982, 1984 and 1987 Christmas specials of The Two Ronnies which were practically a British institution.
The disc also conatins specials suvh as the 1972 edition of Christmas With The Stars and the Old Fashioned Christmas Mystery. As a bonus, there is also a documentery featuring interviews with Ronnie Corbett and others who helped make the show what it was.
My personal favourite sketch comes from the 1987 Christmas special - it is Pinocchio II: Killer Doll and is one of the darkest sketches that The Two Ronnies ever did.
If you are a fan of old-fashioned Christmas Entertainment and specifically The Two Ronnies, then you sjould not hesitate in buying this great DVD release.

The realisation is gradually dawning upon me that I will be spending this coming festive season in a rented cottage miles from anywhere, in the company of a group of people who simply cannot get along with one another even under ordinary circumstances. It has the potential to be a real bloodbath that's for sure. Even worse than that, it was all my idea. Which, of course, means that anything bad that happens is all going to be my fault. I was obviously deluded enough to see myself in the role of some sort of Home Counties Kofi Annan. I must have been drunk, that's the only explanation. And the people who accepted my invitation must have been even drunker. It's true what they say isn't it? - You really can't choose your family.

With all that in mind, I have been increasing my efforts to find a whole range of suitable entertainment that will, fingers crossed, be able to prevent the whole lot of them from killing each other this Christmas (at least until I have managed to flee the scene and thus, hopefully, avoid any future legal proceedings in which I might somehow be named as some sort of 'accessory'). And, as far as festive family entertainment is concerned, you really can't get much better than 'The Two Ronnies'. Although, in the case of this particular item, just because it is heavy on the Yuletide cheer does not mean a person can't get rather a lot out of it at other times of the year as well.

I bought this 2-disc collection a couple of years ago although, if I were in the market for buying it this year, I would undoubtedly have gone for

The Two Ronnies was much-watch TV when I was growing up. Although not laugh-out-loud funny, they were very entertaining. Comedy from a different era but it stands the test of time. Highlight for me was the Old Fashioned Christmas Mystery.
I really enjoyed these DVDs although I was disappointed with Christmas Night With The Stars. Not because of anything that was on it, more what was missing. In the opening credits The Goodies, Dad's Army, The Liver Birds and Mike Yarwood were due to appear. Unfortunately the BBC cut these from the DVD but kept Lulu and Cilla Black in! A missed opportunity, especially as anyone buying this DVD would have an interest in 70's comedy.
Not sure if all their Christmas specials are on this DVD - they must surely have done more? They did do more programmes broadcast on Christmas Day but I don't know if they were Christmas themed.
All in all, well worth the cash!

My favourite of these was the 1982 special, with the 1973 'Old-Fashioned Christmas' being an interesting oddity- it doesn't quite work, but I'm pleased that it was tried; for certain, nothing like it would be attempted by today's TV industry. Of course, The Two Ronnies did many more shows at Christmas than are included in this set, but these are the one-off specials- the other Christmas shows were recorded as part of series, which are/will be available separately.

Bought for a Christmas pressie for 2 older friends and they have loved it. They are 72 years old in 2015 and have enjoyed this immensely. Both are Barker and Corbet fans and so have really loved the trip down memory lane with the sketches, the celebrities from the past and the fashions and have generally got a lot out of this dvd. They watched the whole thing a couple of times and other segments extra to that - maybe that's their age though ;-) It'll be a Christmas staple for them now as they are not ones for bothering with tv, A good buy all round.

Nostalgia aside - and in our house they were far more a Christmas fixture than the Queen's speech - these specials rarely find the Two Ronoids at their best. There are some good routines and some funny gags, others that try your patience a little - and a few that, like leftover turkey, appear in more than one show. The 1974 special is really more of an old-fashioned variety programme and, unusually, mostly written by Barker (under a pseudonym).

The one no-question top-quality item is the 'Chas'n'Dave' song, which I'm sure the Rockney rebels would have been proud to come up with themselves. And that's the spirit to watch it in: yer can' ave everyfin, can yer?

Despite being marketed as the Complete Christmas Specials, this is nothing of the kind. Missing from the DVD are the 1971, 1980 and 1981 Christmas Specials. Does anyone know why this is? Were those episodes wiped (as was typical practice within the BBC), or are they to be the subject of a future DVD release?
