Radio Times review

Some of the freewheeling lunacy, cracker-joke disguises and general corpsing from Milligan's six Q series for the BBC from 1969-82 are shown tonight and tomorrow at 10.30pm. Fortunately most of the stereotyping and sexism of the period has hit the editor's bin. But the programmes do show how many great stooges Milligan had, from Huw Wheldon/Hughie Green impersonator John Bluthal and simpleton-voiced Alan Clare to David "I was in Cockleshell Heroes, you know" Lodge.
