Till Death... DVD review

Fans of Till Death Us Do Part may end up a little disappointed by Till Death..., which definitely isn't how they would choose to think of the immortal Alf Garnett. However, for completists and those interested in forgotten television curiosities, Till Death... is worth a look.

Till Death Us Do Part - Blu-ray review

The immortal character of Alf Garnett as played by Warren Mitchell represents a section of society that's never allowed to be part of British culture any longer - the aspirational and patriotic working classes.

Review - Till Death Us Do Part: The Complete Collection

Till Death Us Do Part is one of the most important and controversial sitcoms even made in Britain: it was controversial when it was broadcast in the 1960s and 70s due to the swearing which attracted the wrath of Mrs. Mary Whitehouse; and is controversial now for the openly racist and offensive views of its lead character, Alf Garnett, perhaps Britain's most popular bigot (with the possible exception of Nigel Farage).

Warren Mitchell dies aged 89

Warren Mitchell, the comedy actor best known for playing Alf Garnett in Till Death Us Do Part, has died aged 89.

British Comedy Guide, 14th November 2015

From Steptoe and Son to Only Fools and Horses and Butterflies to The Royle Family, this hike through the sitcom archive - part of BBC Four's Fatherhood season - tells us all about the lot of beleaguered fathers on the small screen. Larry Lamb (Gavin & Stacey), Warren Mitchell (Till Death Us Do Part) and, a little oddly, Father Ted co-creator Graham Linehan are among those discussing the image of fathers in television comedy in the past 50 years.

Simon Horsford, The Telegraph, 30th June 2010

Bumbling. Accident-prone. Racist. Dead. As this documentary shows, dads have usually drawn the short straw in Britcoms from the 1950s on - unlike their sensible wives or drily witty teenage spore. If they're not being the butt of jokes, they're just odious: Geoffrey Palmer in Butterflies, Old Man Steptoe, or Alf Garnett (pleasing symmetry that Warren Mitchell's on-screen son-in-law Tony Booth latterly became a real-life father-in-law-from-Hell for Tony Blair). Features clips from the likes of Only Fools ... , The Royle Family and Gavin & Stacey.
