Format: DVD
This series was shown on Norwegian television in the early 90s, and I fell head over heels in love with it. You may marvel at the ineptitude and plain stupitity of Harvey Nigel Baines, or feel sympathetic towards the un-lovely, but lovely, Jane, played to perfection by Janine Duvitsky.
But, no matter how you slice it, the heart - or should that be hearts? - of the series must be the wonderful Diana Trent and Tom Ballard. Stephanie Cole steals every scene she´s in, and that means almost all of them, and her one-liners and flights of fancy are a wonder to behold.
I have watched BBC release obscure series after obscure series, and enjoyed quite a lot of them, but Waiting For God is one of the best comedy series they ever made, up there with To The Manor Born, Open All Hours and Yes, (Prime) Minister.
I am overjoyed to finally get these episodes on DVD. I couldn´t be happier.

This series restores my faith in British humour. The goings on at Bayview Retirement Village between Tom (Graham Crowden) and Diana (Stephanie Cole) and the management where they are regarded as trouble makers is so funny that I have often had to pause the DVD player so I can have a good laugh without missing anything. The managment keep doing their best to get rid of them on one pretext or other and fail miserably because Tom and Diana are always one step ahead. Diana's dry humour is typically British and with just a few words will have you laughing until it hurts!

This is one comedy series that is light years head of anything I have watched for a very long time.

The following review applies to all DVDs in the series (with the exception of some issues with series 2 episodes 7 and 8).

Because none of my friends have heard of it I think this must be a much underated sit com. It has been shown on TV recently and I was reminded of just how brillliantly funny it is but does deal with some serious issues especially health issues which are more likely to be encountered as we get older. It is very well written and casted and it's a shame some of them are no longer with us.

Of course comedy is subjective and a lot depends on one's taste in humour but I consider this series to be as good as 'As Time Goes By' and 'The Good Life'. Alas I haven't seen any recently made sit coms that are in the same league.

It would have been nice to be able to buy it as a box set and as I mentioned previously I have experienced issues with Series 2. These are that episodes 7 and 8 don't play and cause my DVD player to hang. Others have experienced similar problems but I understand that the BBC will replace faulty discs although I don't know who to contact regarding this. I suppose I should try Amazon first but I may still receive a faulty replacement.

Non stop cracks and quips but then two past masters of comedy are pitted against each other. Think Pink Panther in a retirement home and a manager who must soon be fast goung down the Herbet Lom madness route with the two principle characters. I did not see this series when broadcast but this is a revelation, better late than never. One reviewer critisised the "Old fashioned humour" but that is the joy, good humour does not date and is always funny as many well written "old" series in my collection testify. What is not to like? Each series does not exactly cost an arm and a leg either.

My Mother's favourite comedy.

Set in a retirement home, the comments - jokes and general attitude towards these "lovely old folk" is hilarious to watch. Well acted, and with some thought given to how people who do live in these homes actually feel, and a hint as to how they may be perceived by those charged with caring for them, this is a treat to watch.

Waiting for God is a witty and very funny series.
Highlighting some of the intricacies and foibles of growing old. Hopefully gracefully, not always dignified.
Highly recommended for an enjoyable viewing.
