Best of British Humour
I loved this when it was first broadcast and now it is being released on DVD find it even funnier.
Although not a Northerner myself, the northern sense of humour, dour and morbidly cynical, is brilliant. I think it is only equalled by The Royle Family and Early Doors.
Although the later series lose some of the original cast, it never drops in quality or funniness.
It seems strange that the books that the series was based on are no longer available, but the series seems to follow them so closely that they stand as a grand epitaph to the great author, Peter Tinniswood.
