The Complete Up The Elephant And Round The Castle

Comedian Jim Davidson consolidated his phenomenal rise to fame with this hit early-eighties sitcom, starring as a happy-go-lucky Cockney who inherits a house but finds owning his own 'castle' brings its own set of problems.

With guest stars including Linda Robson and The Bill's Christopher Ellison, Tony Scannell and Kevin Lloyd, this set contains all three series.

Jim London is jobless, and he doesn't have much luck with the ladies, either. But he gets his first real break when his Auntie Min bequeaths him her house in South London's Elephant and Castle. 17 Railway Terrace might be small, but bachelor Jim's thrilled to have his own place at last. Sadly, he also inherits a cantankerous, unseen but oft-heard lodger, nosy neighbours and unwanted admirers - and an army of dodgy visitors in need of Jim's help and/or a bed for the night...
