What a pleasant suprise to find that someone has finally written a book on these two amazing sitcoms which are so often over looked. The writer has a clear and easy style making the book great for dipping in or out of. If your a die hard fan then there is lots to enjoy here as much of the information is new, with some especially interesting snippets, including sections on movies as well as just the tv productions.
It's great to hear some views from behinds the scenes people and many of the biographys were very interesting including the background on the writers.
It was only a shame that this book has taken 30years to come to pass as many of the original actors have passed away or the one's that are still with us can't remember very much.
the only downside to this great book is that the last few chapters seem to degenerate into one list after another! although some are interesting by the time you get to the section listing transport which is followed by a quiz you begin to wonder if the writer was padding out space.
Also I was sad to see that Robins Nest was reduced to just a page and half and a brief list of episodes, this series whilst not being in the books remit was more derserving than this.
These minor gripes aside this is a fantastic book which will delight any fan of the series and I would recommend you pick up a copy straight away as you wont be disapointed. I look forward to reading any future books this young writer produces. GREAT BOOK!
