The Piglet Files - The Complete First Series

Starring Nicholas Lyndhurst, Clive Francis and Michael Percival, The Piglet Files is the sitcom that truly lifts the lid on the shadowy world of espionage during the early '90s - with quite startling results.

Electronics lecturer Peter Chapman (Lyndhurst) may have fantasised about a James Bond lifestyle, but disillusion quickly sets in when he finds himself coerced into working for MI5, only to discover his spymasters are a collection of misinformed, bungling incompetents. Nevertheless, as gadgets expert 'Piglet' - 'Puma' and 'Panther' were, sadly, already taken - he uses all his skill to combat not only the Soviet agents who are, his bosses are convinced, as active as ever, but a still greater menace: the French secret service! Peter's toughest challenge, however, seems to be dealing with wife Sarah's suspicions about her husband's increasingly strange activities...

This DVD includes the entire first series.
