Editorial Reviews

WINNER / Best TV Comedy Actress - Caroline Quentin / British Comedy Awards


NOMINEE / Best TV Comedy Actor - Martin Clunes / British Comedy Awards


From three first-class comedy writers, Jonathan Harvey (Beautiful Thing), Simon Nye (Men Behaving Badly) and Tim Firth (Calendar Girls), comes this comic trilogy, featuring a trio of quirky characters who struggle to break free from self-imposed prisons in which they are... trapped.


Von Trapped! - Maria Moogan (Caroline Quentin - Men Behaving Badly) is obsessed with The Sound of Music, but when she travels to Salzburg to try to end her compulsion, she makes a discovery that changes her life forever.


Beauty - Hideous aristocrat Tom Fitzhenry (Martin Clunes - Saving Grace) hides his face from the world in his decaying family mansion. When a pretty plumber (Sienna Guillory - The Virgin Queen) comes to fix the pipes, he is forced to venture outside - if he is to have any chance at romance.


King of Fridges - Eager to prove himself, anxious assistant manager Alan (Mark Benton - The Booze Cruise) gets stuck on the rooftop of his store with an obnoxious elderly trainee (Richard Wilson - One Foot in the Grave) when things go awry on a busy bank holiday.

I am a big fan of Caroline Quentin, and also enjoy Martin Clunes in Doc Martin so I thought - a BBC comedy - I'll try it. Well the first of the trilogy is more a sad drama (Caroline is VERY good in it)and I did not find any humor. The daughter who wanted to be a son was in no way a comedic plot. The second story with Clunes was, again, a drama and quite interesting. Not much was funny. The final part of the trilogy was indeed funny - although I was a bit put off by the picture on the cover. It worked, it fit the storyline and the acting was good and quite humorous.

In spite of the well known talents of Wilson and Clunes, and in spite of a huge hope of enjoyment, I have to say I was disappointed with this DVD. The stories were acceptable and the acting extremely good, but the overall pleasure I derived from the DVD was minimal - sadly. Martin Clunes' was particularly excellent, but even he couldn't raise this DVD above 'average' status.

I ordered this DVD because Martin Clunes was featured. Of the three offerings only one was worthwhile. Save your money on this one and order Doc Martin or William and Mary instead.
