Only When I Laugh - The Complete Second Series

The second series of this hilarious sitcom sees the return of the much loved hypochondriac layabouts James Bolam (The Likely Lads), Peter Bowles (To the Manor Born) and Christopher Strauli (Rising Damp The Movie). They continue their misadventures in the hospital wards patrolled by Doctor Thorpe (Richard Wilson - One Foot in the Grave).

This hugely successful comedy is one of the many successes of Eric Chappell (Rising Damp) and directed by Vernon Lawrence (Duty Free). Apart from the eccentric, adorable main characters, it also features Derrick Branche as the meaning but incompetent Nurse Gupte. This disc contains all seven episodes of the second series, available for the first time on DVD complete and uncut.
