Editorial Reviews

“Hilarious” —The Sunday Times (U.K.)

“Glorious sparring partnership” —Daily Mail (U.K.)

Tom Chance seems cursed by fate. Played by Simon Callow (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Shakespeare in Love), this “marvelously original comic character” (Daily Express, U.K.) faces a barrage of absurd coincidences that fuel this uproarious Britcom.

When Tom meets Alison Little (Oscar® nominee Brenda Blethyn, Vera, Pride & Prejudice, Secrets & Lies), a sheltered, earnest librarian, the two embark on an unconventional courtship. Tom’s peculiar speech patterns and bumbling comportment sweetly complement Alison’s cheery aloofness. Despite the cosmic forces seeking to drive them apart—including law enforcement, rude waiters, unrequited loves, petty criminals, and Alison’s overbearing parents—Tom and Alison nobly weather ludicrous circumstances as they blunder into life together and emerge all the more lovable for it. The complete collection includes all three seasons of this award-winning comedy seen on public television.

Due to the age of these programs and the improved resolution that DVD provides, you may notice occasional flaws in the image and audio of this DVD presentation that were beyond our ability to correct from the original materials.

Special Features

BONUS Alternate pilot episode (28 min.), four episode commentaries with Simon Callow and writers Andrew Norriss and Richard Fegan, and a note from Simon Callow

Top Customer Reviews

By Harold Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWER on February 3, 2013
Amazing plot writing of multiple humorous thread-coincidences that culminates in one final hilarious finale. Extreme absurdity is part of the comic fun. Fantastic writing offsets the mid-80s aspects, so watch it as 80s period comedy and enjoy. So over-the-top ridiculous it causes belly-laugh aches. If your humor capacity is not currently warped, this show will do it. Warped in a fun way. 16 episodes were the beginning of writing careers of Andrew Norriss & Richard Fegen. Wife & I laughed hard, we'll watch it again.

Tom Chance (Simon Callow) speaks in fragment sentences while being in the wrong place, bad time. Speaks like a Dickens's character and/or like a 21st century texter. Alison Little (Brenda Blethyn- `Vera') is a stone lighter with an innocence of voice like Downton Abbey's Daisy, and voice and charm of Upstairs, Downstairs' Sarah. The show is loaded with guest stars, many in their pre-stardom days.

SDH SUBTITLES for all 18 episodes.
Season 1, Episode 1 (1,1) Plumstones -A chance meet of Tom & librarian Allison leads to a 1st date and bizarre courtship. Underwear scene reveals Blethyn's fine body of her youth. Waiter (Paul Chapman- `As Time Goes By).
(1,1 alternate pilot bonus) -same title but a different waiter & food fight.
(1,2) Honour Thy Father and Mother -Ma & Pa horrified at Allison's home return in skivvies, only the beginning of the next coincidental mayhem.
(1,3) Flowing with the Tide -Tom's hamster memorial mutates to Allison's seducing; toward Tom, that is, not the hamster.
(1,4) The Birthday Party -What can go right when Tom is hosting? Caterer (Christopher Ellison- `The Bill').
(1,5) Man of Iron -Alison's cousin mixes with pub fists and more misunderstood coincidence.
(1,6) Stuff of Dreams -Cohabitation causes what else?

Frankly the premise is wonderful and situations hilarious. Makes you wish someone would update this series. Could be British or American. I almost didn't recognize Callow as the larger than life Scot in Four Weddings. What else of his have I missed?

This really made us laugh but we finally gave up because of the constant use of the abuse of animals which is surprising for the Brits.
