Don't Drink The Water - The Complete Series

This sequel to On The Buses follows the further misfortunes of the newly retired Inspector Blake (Stephen Lewis), erstwhile scourge of the Luxton Bus Company Depot. Dreaming of peace and quiet, sun and senoritas, he's decided to warm up the autumn of his days in a little flat in Spain that the glossy brochures have lured him into buying with his life's savings - so beginning a whole new series of mishaps that could happen only to Blakey. The water's undrinkable, the food's 'orrible, the plumbing's dodgy...and it's full of foreigners!

Also starring Pat Coombs (as Blakey's long-suffering sister Dorothy) and Derek Griffiths, Don't Drink The Water was created by Ronald Wolfe and Ronald Chesney - the writing team behind the phenomenally successful predecessor, On The Buses, and whose comedy credits also include Educating Archie, Meet The Wife and The Rag Trade.

This 2-disc set contains both series, originally broadcast in 1974 and 1975.
