Although I have most of the sit-coms already, I'm still looking forward to owning this! As a collector of Christmas DVDs it's great to see them all in one package. My favourite has to the Good Neighbours episode. The biggest draw for me though are the dramas, known as light entertainment in the UK. Most of them aired on Sunday nights and were extremely popular. I can't wait to see the All Creatures Great and Small episode,

Although much discussion could be had about what's missing, this is a very comprehensive selection. Despite some programmes having the same writers they are all very different from each other. This would make a perfect present for any Brits living in the US, fans of British television and collectors of all things Christmas! This is a quality collection and will sit happily side by side with the American equivalents TV Sets: Holiday 2-Pack,

Verified Purchase
Got a taste for BBC comedy or drama? Perhaps you're hooked on the quirky personalities who work in the Ladies' and Men's departments at the Grace Brothers department store in London? Sure, that series ended its 13-year run in 1985 and some of the comic bits are slightly dated--but many Americans love the reruns of Are You Being Served? Or, how about Ballykissangel, set in a quirky little town in Northern Ireland, where everyone from the priest to the pub owner is likely to get tangled up in an hour-long farce? Perhaps you've dipped waaaay back in time and love Lark Rise to Candleford, which seems a lot like the American Little House on the Prairie TV series set in late-19th-century England, based on the beloved trilogy of semi-autobiographical novels by Flora Thompson, published between 1939 and 1943 in the UK.

We could go on and on with this quirky list. In our family, we're big Lark Rise and Ballykissangel fans. And, even though we've seen those Christmas episodes, we enjoy the holiday mood so much that we're happy to see these favorites again. When we broke open this set, we had friends visiting who were big fans of Good Neighbors. They had seen the particular Christmas episode in this set multiple times, but it was their choice for all of us to enjoy together. And, now, our family has a taste for Good Neighbors.

This is the way to buy the 2011 BBC Holiday delight. They have all the chosen episodes from great series on two other Holiday sets, one for drama, one for comedy, but this is the most economical way to purchase it all. And it's worth owning it all. What a delightful way to get a look at the series, if you are not familiar with them. This represents some of the best BBC television every produced. My favorites from these selections are Lark Rise to Candleford, Monarch of the Glen, To the Manor Born, and Are You Being Served--probably in that order. All of those series were over-the-top of 5-star series. But you can't discount any of these fun holiday happenings. Some of the BBC series lasted for many years and thus there were multiple holiday episodes. It takes owning the entire series to get them all, unless BBC begins putting out a new set of Holiday Delight every year. Put THAT on your Santa list.

The other sets include one with 5 BBC dramas and their holiday episodes from All Creatures Great and Small, Ballykissangel, Monarch of the Glen, Lovejoy, and Lark Rise to Candleford; the set called "BBC Holiday Drama", of course. Then, "BBC Holiday Comedy" contains 8 funny BBC Christmas specials from The (plump female) Vicar of Dibley and their holiday pageant to Good Neighbors when Yule joy goes so wrong. Between are seasonal shows from Are You Being Served, To the Manor Born, Allo Allo, Last of the Summer Wine, Keeping Up Appearances, & Blackadder.

Warning: If you are new to BBC and British comedy and drama, this set will get you hooked.
Bottom line, I recommend both the BBC Holiday Drama, and BBC Holiday Comedy, but the true value is BBC Holiday Gift Set--the full meal deal, all 13 in one set, at the lower price.

Then...there's more...
