    In the Basement


    I liked this but there were too many Nazis and sado-masochists and not enough model railway enthusiasts...

    Adventures of a Plumber's Mate


    Again not good but there's a strange underlying pessimism to the "adventures" in this final outing. Christopher Neil's character is constantly under threat of eviction and physical violence and is filled with self-loathing (nice girl Elaine Paige loves him but he knows he's too awful to start a relationship with her). It's the closest this series gets to a film noir!

    Goodbye, Dragon Inn


    This was great, and I'm really glad I watched the 1967 Dragon Inn the day before. Not at all necessary but I think it added to my pleasure in watching this!

    Mystical super-beings clash in 70s Paris. An instant favorite I think!
