| And off we go to Thames - the later Morecambe and Wise years
Morecambe and Wise headed to Thames after they had reached their peak at the BBC, and the common theory is that the material produced was much lower during this time.

Yes, both Morecambe and Wise look a bit older, and them not having Eddie Braben writing the scripts at the start of their Thames tenure didn't help, as he was, in my opinion the only one really capable of writing for them inch perfect, but there are some lovely sketches and moments, at least in the early years.

You just have to look a bit harder for it, as in amongst that you do I'm afraid have some weaker things, as well as material being rehashed, not only from the BBC series, but also the ATV years.

My advice would be to pan for the gold and skip the rest.
