Oh Doctor Beeching! - The Complete Collection

From Richard Spendlove and David Croft, writer of Dad's Army and Hi-De-Hi!, Oh Doctor Beeching! has been a firm favourite with millions of British comedy fans.

Arriving in 1963, please alight at the small branch railway station of Hatley, threatened with closure under the Beeching Axe. Paul Shane stars as porter Jack Skinner, married to the café-managing May (Julia Deakin), who was once in a close relationship with new station master Cecil Parkin (Jeffrey Holland). Also on the platform of this quaint and quirky railway station are May's daughter Gloria (Lindsay Grimshaw), booking clerk Ethel Schumann (Su Pollard), and signalman and jack-of-all-trades (all of them off the books), Harry Lambert (Stephen Lewis).

Over 19 fun-filled episodes, Oh Doctor Beeching! celebrates everything that was great about Britain and the British railway, back when the greatest challenge in rail travel was getting a decent cup of tea.
