A Bit Of A Do - The Complete Series

A Bit Of A Do charts the comedic progress of two feuding families (the Simcocks and the Rodenhursts) as they are thrust together at a changing series of social events. Mr Simcock is in metalwork (toasting forks, coal scuttles, door knockers) while Mr Rodenhurst is a very respectable up-market dentist. Written by David Nobbs (The Fall And Rise Of Reginald Perrin), A Bit Of A Do witnesses the snobbery and petty jealousies between people thrown together on those fateful occasions. Stars comedy legends David Jason and Gwen Taylor and features a young David Thewlis.

Includes all 13 episodes of the series.

Extras include Nobbs' 1982 play Dogfood Dan And The Carmarthen Cowboy, which became a series of its own in 1988.
