Would be 5 stars if it was the complete series
on 10 April 2012
I was caught out with Clare in the Community Series 6, and I was caught out again. What is it with the BBC... THIS IS NOT THE COMPLETE SERIES. It is a "Selection from" Series One, a fact that you can only tell if you enlarge the image of the CD. Amazon aren't exactly helping, as they are (at the time of writing this review) advertising this as "Sarah Millican's Support Group Series 1". (I will be reporting this misrepresentation!)
Why do you do this to us, BBC Audio? Sarah Millican created 6 excellent episodes of her support group, which were hilarious and often had me laughing out loud. Part stand up, part ensemble, part audience participation, all of it was incredibly funny, whether it was scripted or the impromptu interactions with the audience.
Six fantastic episodes... but we have to make do with four of them. Why do you taunt us with only four? Your packaging is such that if you don't read the cover carefully, you think you're getting the lot. This is a huge shame, as I believe it is possible to get the complete series as an audible download. At least I think you can... I might have to look at the image again in case of small print...
If, like me, you'd rather have a CD than an audio download, by all means get this CD. Just be aware that two of the episodes from that first excellent series will not be included, and try not to let it dampen your entertainment.
